CCG Diabetes Assessment 2017/18

NHS England | January 2019 | CCG Diabetes Assessment 2017/18

This document contains the independent panel commentary, methodology of the ratings for 2017/18 and the CCG individual assessment ratings for 2017/18.

The measures are drawn from the 2016/17 and 2017/18 National Diabetes Audits which include data from 95 and 98 per cent of GP practices respectively. This means all areas have robust measurements of their diabetes performance.

The data show that overall the proportion of people reaching treatment targets is stable but there is much underlying variation. The panel has continued to use the same measurements and targets for HbA1c, blood pressure and cholesterol to ensure consistency between years.

The panel has chosen to use the benchmarks from 2016/17 as this better illustrates year-on-year progression in improvement. The improvements this year mean that there are therefore more areas with the higher ratings than if 2017/18 benchmarks had been used. The regional distribution has evolved over the last year so that there are no CCGs rated as inadequate in London now, while there is a concentration in the North (Source: NHS England).
