The Surgery is taking part in the National Diabetes Audit (NDA). The NDA checks whether people with diabetes are getting good care.
The NDA collects information about diabetes care from GP practices and hospitals. This information helps the NHS to improve care.
The NDA only uses information about your diabetes care that is already recorded. For example, type of diabetes, latest blood pressure result and results of HbA1c, or eye screening tests. The NDA is not a research project. No extra blood tests, appointments or scans are needed.
The use of NDA information is controlled by law and strict rules of confidentiality. The NDA is managed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), working with Diabetes UK and Public Health England. Taking part in the NDA can help improve understanding of the quality of care for people with diabetes. But you can choose not to take part if you have concerns
Say ‘no thanks’ if you do not want your information to be used, please inform the receptionist, your GP or nurse. They will make sure that this is noted on your medical records, so your information is not included. This will not affect your care in any way.
