National Diabetes Prevention Programme

On the 23 May 2019, the national diabetes prevention programme confirmed that HbA1c POCT tests will no longer be undertaken on individuals referred to the service. This change has been implemented for three reasons a) this data was primarily being used for evaluation purposes and the programme now has a sufficiently large dataset to no longer require it and b) in having completed some evaluation/analysis of the data it shows that results are less accurate compared to lab testing c) removing blood testing will simplify the patient journey. The NDPP programme has confirmed that referrals to the service on the basis of a diagnosis of Non-diabetic hyperglycaemia will still be accepted from referring professionals using POCT. The findings of the evaluation on POCT undertaken by DPP will be published in a scientific paper later this year. In the meantime advice in the NHS Health Check best practice guidance still stands while the CVD prevention team undertakes work to consider whether this advice needs to be amended as part of the updates to the September NHS Health Check Best Practice Guidance. Supporting documents include FAQ, a letter to GP practices and the cessation of point-of-care testing.

Option to revise previously published quarterly activity data

From April 2019, local authorities can revise their previously published data themselves. This replaces previous protocol where local authorities had to email the national team and ask for amendments to be made. Revisions can only be made when the portal for submission of latest quarterly data is opened. Therefore, revision of 2018-19 Q1, Q2 and or Q3 data can be made between 1 April 2019 and 10 May 2019. Note that data from previous financial years cannot be revised. Notices detailing revisions made by local authorities are published alongside the data.
