National Diabetes AuditSeptember 29 2014
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 the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), 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 five distinct areas of diabetes care, treatment and outcome. Further information can be found on the HSCIC website, using the links below:

- Patient Experience of Diabetes Services Survey (PEDS): The diabetes patient experience survey was piloted in 2013.
