  • use of diabetes-related technologies
  • evidence of cardiovascular risk factors
  • other related comorbidities
  • parent and patient contact with their diabetes team
  • patient’s ability to manage condition
  • hospital admissions for diabetic ketoacidosis

  • hospital admissions without complications



NCVIN, NHS Benchmarking Network and NHS England collaboratively produce data for the CVDPREVENT audit. The Data & Improvement Tool allows users to understand their data in more detail. Data is available on patients that have evidence of impaired glucose control that are not recorded as having diabetes.
