Halton and St Helens PCT
This standard was set from Joint British Society guidance that
all patients with IFG should have annual glucose follow up.
Standards were not met.
I sent out letters to all those patients who had not had the blood test inviting them to attend for the blood test, stressing that it must be a fasting sample (as some of the RBGs taken were probably supposed to be fasting but the patient forgot) and the importance of having the test.
Audit conducted at Rainford health centre Dec- March 2010.
Practice population was searched for patients with IFG,
exclusion criteria was those that had gone on to develop
This produced a sample size of 77 patients.
