The information available from this webpage comes from the National Diabetes Inpatient Audit. The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit is a snapshot audit of diabetes inpatient care.
During September 2019, hospitals across England collected data on the characteristics of the hospital, including participation, staffing levels and care improvement initiatives. Wales did not participate in NaDIA 2019.
Making clinical audit data transparent
In his transparency and open data letter to Cabinet Ministers on 7 July 2011, the Prime Minister made a commitment to make clinical audit data available from the national audits within the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme.
What information is being made available?
National Diabetes Inpatient Audit data for 2019 is available at hospital site level for:
Audit participation and data completeness for the key fields
Measures about the process of care given to patients
Information about care outcomes and treatment.
These data do not list individual patient information nor do they contain any patient identifiable data.
Using and interpreting the data
Data from the National Diabetes Inpatient Audit should not be looked at in isolation when assessing standards of care.
Accessing the data
The data are being made available on the data.gov website. Each year a data file from the National Diabetes Inpatient Audit will be made available in CSV format. Hospitals are identified by name and their national code.

This report covers hospital characteristics during September 2019. The audit report was published on 13 November 2020. Historic data is available for previous audit years (2010-2013, 2015-2017) where survey questions were comparable.
