Welcome to NPDA Results Online, the interactive reporting tool for the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit

The National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA) was established in 2003 to support professionals, families and commissioners in improving the provision of care provided by paediatric diabetes units (PDU). The NPDA is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), funded by NHS England and the Welsh Government, and is delivered by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH).

The NPDA produces yearly national reports, the latest of which is the NPDA 2016-17 National Report, published on the 12th July 2018, which summarises data collected between 01 April 2016 and 31 March 2017. The NPDA has developed this online reporting tool with the intention of making the results of the analysis of NPDA data more interactive and accessible at PDU, regional network, and clinical commissioning group (CCG)/local health board (LHB) level.

This online tool is open to anyone and has no login or password restrictions. By using the menu functions on the left of this screen it is possible to choose to:

  • view an overall annual summary report for a chosen paediatric diabetes unit
  • view and compare the results for specific NPDA audit measures for different PDUs, networks, or CCG/LHB
  • view, via the Outlier analysis section, whether any given unit's key performance results are outside of the expected average range

Please note that all results relating to outcomes or care processes are applicable to children and young people with Type 1 diabetes only, as numbers with other types of diabetes are too small to report at PDU/regional/CCG/LHB level. Please refer to the NPDA 2016-17 National Report, for summaries of outcomes and care processes received by all children and young people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes in England and Wales.

The NPDA project board hopes that this tool will further enhance the ability of the audit to encourage the sharing of best practice and to stimulate quality improvement activities for the benefit of children and young people with diabetes and their families.
