Diabetic complications and mortality

(4th January 2013)



The Yorkshire & Humber Public Health Observatory has published a briefing 'Diabetic complications and mortality: PCT level analysis of the National Diabetes Audit 2010/11' which reports on a Primary Care Trust (PCT) level analysis of diabetic complications and mortality based on the National Diabetes Audit which was published on 10th December 2012

by the NHS Information Centre.


The key messages are: there are no clear associations between the extent of additional diabetic complications and additional mortality among people with diabetes; and if the 25% of PCTs that had the highest additional risk of dying among people with diabetes reduced the additional risk to the England value there would have been 1570 fewer deaths in 2011.
