National Diabetes Audit
As with almost all GP practices, it is a contractual requirement that we participate in the National Diabetes Audit (NDA), which collects information about diabetic care from GP practices and links it with data from the Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) database to check whether people with diabetes are getting good care. Your NHS number and date of birth are used to link the practice and hospital information.
