An audit of the care of diabetics in one general practice


I designed and implemented a simple audit of the care of diabetic patients on one general practitioner's list. The audit demonstrated a lack of adequate care in some aspects, so it was used to improve the care offered in future by designing a method of diabetic follow-up incorporating an effective recall system, shared and integrated care between doctor and nurse, and a clear method of recording essential information.

I suggest that audit is not adequately completed until the new systems developed have themselves been adequately audited and consequential changes in care measured.
