RD&E performs well in 2015 National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NADIA)


Inpatient diabetes care at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital has been highly rated in the 2015 National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NADIA). 

The audit, undertaken by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), looks at the care of all inpatients with diabetes on a single day in all Trusts across England and Wales. It focuses on key staffing and organisational issues, clinical outcome measures and patient satisfaction levels.

At the RD&E, 133 inpatients with diabetes took part in the 2015 audit. In the hospital-level results, the RD&E’s Inpatient diabetes team scored highly for patient experience and displayed excellent daily diabetes management for patients across the hospital.  
Key areas of success include:

Patients also praised the care and knowledge of staff, with 88.7% saying they were satisfied or very satisfied with their care, which places the RD&E amongst the top performing English Trusts in the audit.

Dr Thomas Fox, Consultant in Endocrinology and Acute Medicine/Clinical Lead for the Inpatient diabetes team, said: “We are very pleased with the results of this audit.  This shows measures of good patient care and patients’ satisfaction have improved and compare favourably with most Trusts in England and Wales. This is thanks to the hard work of all of the staff in the trust looking after patients with diabetes and the inpatient diabetes team.”

This was the fifth year that the RD&E has taken part in the National Diabetes Inpatient Audit since 2010, and the team are constantly striving to improve their results year on year.

The full hospital level results are available from and the National Report is due to be published on the 23rd June.
