2012-15 NPDA: Part 2 Hospital admissions and complications report now available

Summarises hospital admission data for children and young people with diabetes over three annual audit cycles between 1 April 2012 and 31 March 2015.

Admissions to hospital among children and young people with diabetes place a large burden on NHS resources and patient and family wellbeing, and can be considered as a quality of care or performance indicator. This report investigates acute emergency hospital admissions where the primary diagnosis is related to diabetes in children and young people cared for in Paediatric Diabetes Units (PDUs) in England and Wales.
