Data on numbers of people diagnosed with diabetes is collected as part of the National Diabetes Audit (NDA).
Participation in the NDA is not mandatory and data is collected by primary care trust (PCT) rather than by constituency. Brighton and Hove PCT area had only partial participation in the 2008-09 NDA, which is the last year for which figures are available. The NDA collated data on 6,658 persons with diabetes in Brighton and Hove PCT. Of these, 911 had type 1 diabetes, 5,625 had type 2 diabetes and 122 had other types of diabetes. It is estimated that there are approximately 13,000 people with diabetes in Brighton and Hove PCT. This estimate uses the PBS Diabetes Population Prevalence Model Phase 3 (PBS3 model), developed by the Yorkshire and Humber Public Health Observatory.
