National Diabetes Audit
Helping to Improve Diabetes Care
The practice is taking part in an important national project about diabetes care and treatment in the NHs. The project is called the National Diabetes Audit (NDA).
To take part, the practice will share information about your diabetes care and treatment with the NDA. The type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security.
For further information about how your information is used please the NDA patient information leaflet below.
NDA Diabetes Audit Patient Information Leaflet
Taking part in the NDA shows that this practice is committed to improving care for people with diabetes.
If you do no want your information to be used, please inform the receptionist, your GP or Nurse. This will not affect your care.
'Fair Processing' - Informing Patients
The NDA has previously operated under Regulation 5 of the Health Service Regulations 2002 (known as Section 251 support) to collect patient identifiable data, however from April 2017 NHS England will be directing NHS Digital to collect this data. The new legal basis will be Section 254 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. Participation in the NDA is endorsed by professionals (RCGP) and people with diabetes (Diabetes UK).
