Update information

March 2023: This quality standard was updated, and statements prioritised in 2011 and 2016 were replaced. The topic was identified for update following a review of quality standards. The review identified:

  • changes in the priority areas for improvement

  • new and updated guidance on type¬†2 diabetes in adults

  • that the quality standard on diabetes in adults should be split into separate quality standards.

Statements are marked as:

  • [new 2023] if the statement covers a new area for quality improvement

  • [2011, updated 2023] or [2016, updated 2023] if the statement covers an area for quality improvement included in the 2011 or 2016 quality standard and has been updated.
