The National Diabetes Audit introduced a quality improvement programme in 2017 and supported the work of local healthcare teams to influence care and patient behaviours in order to improve outcomes for people living with diabetes.
The Quality Improvement Collaboratives (QICs) focused on four areas:
- inpatient care
- pregnancy and pre-conception care
- transition from young people's to adult diabetes services.
