Submitting your data

Following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions many services have either returned to normal or have created a new normal clinic process. Patients should receive all health checks and care processes, and these should be recorded on the data capture system.

If you are unsure about any particular items, please review the dataset notes, or get in touch with us at

National Data Opt Out

The NPDA has been exempted from the National Data Opt Out. Unless your patients specifically request to opt out of the audit you should enter their data.

Submission periods

Data can be added continuously throughout each audit year. Units will typically have up to two months following the end of each audit year to finalise their submissions for that year. Please see the table below for full details of our audit years and data submission periods:

Audit year Year start Year end Final date for data submission
2022-23 1 April 2022 31 March 2023 Updated Friday 2 June 2023
2023-24 1 April 2023 31 March 2024 TBC

We ask that units submit data from all patient visits during the audit year. Data relating to all children and young people with all types of diabetes under the care of a paediatrician within a paediatric diabetes unit should be included. Summary results are presented within the data completeness report (DCR) generated upon each submission.

For data submission, you will need to use our online data capture system. If you used this last year, you can use the same login details. If you have forgotten your password, you can reset this on the login page. Please see below for a list of downloadable submission resources and user guides.

The latest user guides and troubleshooting tips for our online data capture system can also be downloaded below.

Also available is the core NPDA dataset collected since 1 April 2021 and corresponding CSV submission template; this replaces the dataset in use since 2017. ​The dataset has been revised in line with guidance associated with achievement of NHS Information Standard status. The majority of data items remain unchanged but there is one new item and some items have been renamed, or modifications made to their response options.

GP practice codes

GP practice codes are updated quarterly by NHS Digital. The most up to date version of the GP practice codes can be found on their page, GP and GP practice related data.
