The National Diabetes Quality Programme (NDQP) was established in 2018 in collaboration with the National Children and Young People’s Diabetes Network, and aimed to to help drive outcomes, improvements and encourage service change in paediatric diabetes care in England and Wales.

Each year, participating service teams submitted their compliance against the NDQP's self-assessment measures, with sign off by the clinical lead and medical director of the Health Board/Trust. Network managers also submitted their compliance on behalf of the regional network.

The total number of submissions varied per year for varied reasons, including pressures from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The self-assessment was supported by peer review, in which external stakeholders also evaluated a service's compliance to the measures.

This report, which you can download below, presents detailed findings of the measures in three groups - Health Board/Trust, multidisciplinary team and network - and across varied themes.
