This GP practice is taking part in an important national project about diabetes care and treatment in the NHS. The project is called the National Diabetes Audit (NDA).
To take part, your GP practice will share information about your diabetes care and treatment with the NDA. The type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security.
Taking part in the NDA shows that this GP practice is committed to improving care for people with diabetes.
The NDA has always collected patient identifiable data from health care providers since it began in 2004. However, people with diabetes need to be made aware that their service is participating in the NDA - this is known as 'fair processing'. it does not mean that patients have to consent individually.
