Bolton JSNA Indicator Sheet: Diabetes

Abstract

This is the Diabetes JSNA Indicator Sheet from the Disease and Ill Health section. JSNA Indicator Sheets summarise the current position and recent trends for Bolton, comparators to Bolton, and inequalities across population groups and geographical areas of Bolton.

Headlines

  • Bolton's prevalence of diabetes is higher than both the national and regional averages;
  • QOF prevalence only shows those diagnosed with diabetes by a GP. We know this is an underestimation and a more accurate picture is given by the Modelled Estimate and our local Bolton Health & Wellbeing Survey;
  • Diabetes is increasing locally, regionally, and nationally;
  • Diabetes is very strongly associated with ethnicity - the South Asian groups have by far the highest prevalence in Bolton;
  • In some areas of Bolton with large South Asian communities prevalence is over 16%.
