The NPDA Annual Report for 2010-11 is now available
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health are delighted to announce that the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit Annual Report, covering 2010-11 data, is.

Important update for users of stand-alone Twinkle (updated August 13, 2012)
After several discussions with existing stand-alone Twinkle sites, Hicom has agreed to make specification changes to the stand-alone system which will enable those sites to export data to the NPDA in the new format. Please note however that any new fields included in the revised NPDA dataset for 2010/11 will be output as a blank.
Hicom see this as a temporary measure and they will not be able to provide development to add in any new fields to the stand-alone database, so the only changes will be to the NPDA extract. Hicome hope to be in a position to deliver this change by the end of August, to enable you to extract your data before 28 September.
If you wish to go ahead and request this change, there will be a charge of £125 +VAT, which Hicom will offset against any future upgrade to Twinkle.NET (within the next 12 months).
For further details please contact Shelly Davies, Account Manager for Hicom: Shelly.Davies@hicom.co.uk
