|The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) – 2015
|The Health and Social Care Information Centre
|This report presents the 2015 results and analyses the changes in activity and outcomes over the last four contributory years (2010 to 2013). This year the number of patients in the audit exceeds 15,000; accounting for a record 16.8 per cent of occupied beds. In some sites this is nearing 40 per cent. This increase reflects the aging population and the increasing prevalence of diabetes in the community. Given the year upon year increase since the first audit and extrapolating forwards, the proportion of hospital inpatients with diabetes will almost certainly rise in coming years. As such, the data from these audits are important in planning services for the future.
