NDA reports

Each year, national and local level reports are published for each audit, which are available from the NHS Digital Search Catalogue. Additionally, Diabetes UK produces an easy-to-read version of the national audit findings for people with diabetes and the general public, which can be downloaded from this page.

Core Audit

Latest information on data collection and reports are available from the NHS Digital website:

National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) 

  • The Annual Report, published in March 2017, provides a summary of the 2016 audit findings for England and Wales, and where possible compares to the 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 data. Comparative hospital analysis provides results at individual site level.
  • The NaDIA 2017 data collection will take place between 25 and 29 September. Further information can be found on the NHS Digital website.

National Diabetes Foot care Audit (NDFA)

  • The NDFA 2014-2016 report, published in March 2017, collected data on 11,000 people with acute diabetic foot ulcers. The findings are reported at national, commissioner, provider and network level.
  • A new Hospital Admission Report was published in October 2017. Patients in the NDFA have been linked to hospital admissions data in England and Wales, allowing analysis of hospital inpatient activity during the six months following first expert assessment by the specialist foot care service. The report includes: all hospital admissions, foot disease admissions, length of stay, revascularisation and amputation.
  • As the NDFA is a continuous data collection, services can commence participation at any time. All services that treat diabetic foot ulcers are expected to participate in the NDFA and participating services should attempt to record data on all new referrals to their service.

The NDA has published a Guide to Quality Improvement in Specialist Diabetes Services (PDF, 210KB), which offers a brief but comprehensive review of the principles and practice of improvement methodology, together with suggestions for how these examples can be applied to diabetes care.

The National Cardiovascular Intelligence Network (NCVIN) provides a range of diabetes data, tools and information to support improvement activity.
