January 15, 2014

Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health

The foreword of this report from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health says that the “Findings from this year’s Audit are both heartening and troubling.

On the positive side, nearly complete national coverage of paediatric diabetes units has been achieved, and the number of infants, children and young people with diabetes under the age of 25 years reported to the NPDA has increased.

Measurements of HbA1c have also improved and the percentage of patients with HbA1c values in the range of 58mmol/mol (7.5%) has risen.

Despite these achievements fewer than one in five patients overall reach this level of control. They also noted that the extent to which children and young people receive the care processes recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence remains low”.

The report has 50 pages including: Demographic and population assessment - Care processes and treatment targets - Outcomes of care - Conclusions and future directions.
