National Diabetes Audit 2017/18 – opt in deadline 9 March 2018
The NDA team has sent a report showing the CCG practices who have opted in to the automatic extraction service (GPES) for participation in the NDA 2017/18 audit. Almost all practices have done this – thank you!
The option to opt in to the NDA was sent out via CQRS. However, we appreciate with the recent half term, not all practices will have had chance to do this. Therefore, we thought it would be helpful to remind you the deadline for the automatic opt in process is Friday 9 March 2018.
Sally and Emma will be contacting practice managers directly where this has not been done to ensure no one misses this opportunity as this now forms part of practice GMS contracts. To try to reduce the number of emails that are sent to primary care we will not contact practices who have already approved the automatic extraction process. If anyone has any queries please do not hesitate to contact Sally or Emma.
