The number of adults diagnosed with diabetes is taken from the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), this represents all patients age 17 and older who have been diagnosed with diabetes and recorded on general practitioner (GP) registers.

The latest data available are for 2014/15, when there were 2,913,538 adults included on GP registers. QOF goes back to 2004/05 and at that time there were 1,766,391 adults included on GP registers.
