National Diabetes Audit and Diabetes Prevention Programme Pilot Study

The National Diabetes Audit and Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDA-DPP) Pilot Study is managed by NHS Digital working with Diabetes UK and Public Health England. NHS Digital also manages the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) which collects information for patients with diabetes.

What information will be collected by the pilot?

The DPP Pilot is collecting information for people with non-diabetic hyperglycaemia, also known as pre-diabetes or impaired glucose regulation. The DPP Pilot will only collect information about care that is already recorded within GP practices. For example, latest blood pressure result, HbA1c (blood glucose levels) result, or whether an offer has been made to the prevention programme education course.

A list of all items collected by the pilot can be found on the right hand side on this page.

Why is this information being collected?

The NDA has been asked to collect information about non-diabetic hyperglycaemia care in future collections of the NDA, this information will be collected directly from GP practices; however this information has not been collected by the audit before.

To ensure that the information collected by the audit will be useful, and be able to feed into quality improvement for GP practices, we need to investigate how non-diabetic hyperglycaemia information is being recorded so that we can identify how best to add it to the already established NDA dataset. This will include how well read codes are populated, and an understanding of the number of people with non-diabetic hyperglycaemia within practices.

Who will participate in the pilot?

The practices have been recruited by NHS England from those that are already enrolled in the first wave of the DPP; 22 practices in England have agreed to participate in the pilot. We are grateful to these practices for agreeing to take part in this pilot.

What do recruited practices need to do?

Practices have been given posters and patient information leaflets so that they can inform their patients that they are taking part in the pilot, further copies are available to download on the right hand side of this page. Practices will have between 13th March and 7th April to run the MiQuest queries and submit the resulting files to the secure Data Landing Portal. Full guidance is provided on the right hand side of this page.
