Notes:

1. Participation in the NDA, which audits diabetes registrations in primary and secondary care, is not mandatory. The NDA does not have 100% coverage or participation so the information in the table will be incomplete.

2. The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health is the authoritative source for all paediatric diabetes audit data.

3. The NDA currently only holds data for 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13. Each audit covers a 15 month period, for example the 2012-13 audit was for the period 1 January 2012 to 31 March 2013.

4. Due to the 15 month audit period from January to March, a patient could be classed as newly diagnosed in two audit periods, for example if the patient were diagnosed in 2012 and appeared in the 2011-12 and the 2012-13 audit they could be counted twice, once in each year.

5. The data at CCG level is collated by mapping data from GP practices for each audit year to their current CCG. Prior to the 2011-12 audit, the NDA reported at primary care trust (PCT) level. Where PCT and CCG boundaries differ, the figures here will differ to published figures from the 2009-10 and 2010-11 audits.

6. NDA 2012-13 comprised data from 1.9 million people with diabetes in England. The Quality and Outcomes Framework states there are approximately 2.7 million people aged 17 or over with diabetes in England alone.

7. NDA 2012-13 comprised data from 5,666 practices in England, there are around 8,000 practices in England.
