The National Diabetes Audit (NDA) - How your information is used to help improve diabetes care.
The NDA collects information about diabetes care from GP practices and hospitals. This information helps the NHS to improve care. The use of NDA information is controlled by law and strict rules of confidentiality.
The NDA is managed by NHS Digital (formerly known as 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. Please let the surgery know if you wish to opt-out.
NHS Digital will use your NHS number and date of birth to link information that is collected from your GP practice, or diabetes clinic, to other information recorded by the NHS and NHS Digital relating to your diabetes care.
