Our local Diabetes Service is taking part in the National Diabetes Service (the NDA). The NDA checks whether people with diabetes are getting good care. They collect information from hospitals and GPs.
The information they take includes your NHS number and postcode - they DO NOT take your name or address. The NDA is interested in certain clinical targets including the HBa1c, retinopathy screening results and blood pressure readings. They want to use this information to improve the provision of diabetes care.
The following link leads to a patient information leaflet giving more details about the NDA. The link clearly explains how any patient information is used - and importantly how the information is protected and kept safe.
If you have any questions, please contact the practice.
If you would prefer not to allow your information to go forwards into the audit, then please inform our reception team. They will make a note on your medical record and your details will not be used. Opting out will NOT affect your clinical care.
