Improving data recording of attendance at diabetes structured education

The National Diabetes Audit team, Diabetes UK, NHS England’s Diabetes Team and Clinical Networks have come together to coordinate a national project to improve recording of attendance at diabetes structured education. The standardised approach has been developed in consultation with key stakeholders, including diabetes structured education providers and clinicians working in general practice.

Recommended approach for recording attendance 

The record that a person with diabetes being ‘offered’ or ‘referred’ for diabetes structured education is currently well recorded and captured in GP systems. Evidence of this is reflected in the NDA findings. 

Data capture onat diabetes structured education is poor. Therefore, a standardised approach has been developed to improve recording of the outcome of the referral.

It is recommended that all education providers use the following Read Codes to communicate the outcome of a referral to diabetes structured education.
