The National Diabetes Audit (NDA) is a major national clinical audit, which measures the effectiveness of diabetes healthcare against NICE Clinical Guidelines and NICE Quality Standards, in England and Wales.
The NDA is delivered by NHS Digital, in partnership with Diabetes UK. It collects and analyses data and produces reports for a range of stakeholders to use to drive changes and improve the quality of services and health outcomes for people with diabetes.
The NDA includes four distinct areas of diabetes care, treatment and outcome. Further information can be found on the NHS Digital website, using the links below:
- National Diabetes Core Audit (NDA): This annual audit of primary care and specialist diabetes services covers care processes, treatment targets, complications and mortality.
- National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA): This is a snapshot audit of every hospital covering inpatient care of people with diabetes.
- National Pregnancy in Diabetes (NPID) Audit: This audit examines antenatal services for women with pre-gestational diabetes.
- National Diabetes Footcare Audit (NDFA): This audit collects data about specialist foot care services for people with diabetes.
- National Diabetes Transition Audit (NDTA): This joint initiative links the NDA and National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA) datasets to measure if young people experience a smooth transition of care from paediatric to adult diabetes services. The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) manages the NPDA.

The National Pregnancy In Diabetes (NPID) Audit is looking for a neonatologist to join its advisory group on a volunteering basis. This is a great opportunity to use your clinical experience to guide the audit and improve the care and outcomes for women living with diabetes and their babies at a national level.
The advisory group gives operational guidance for the audit and meets approximately 5 times a year. Most of the meetings are held virtually using Microsoft Teams. One meeting a year will be held face-to-face in London once the covid situation allows.
