Leicester Practice Risk Score

Leciester Practice Risk Score developed to aid identifying those at risk of diabetes.

Here is the Leicester Practice Risk Score download. The Leicester Practice Risk Score was developed by researchers within the Diabetes Research Centre at the University of Leicester and is now recommended by NICE for the identification of those at risk of diabetes and for identifying people with non-diabetic hyperglycemia for the National Diabetes Prevention Programme. The score identifies people who may be at high risk of diabetes (also called prediabetes or non-diabetic hyperglycemia) or currently have undiagnosed type 2 diabetes using data on age, sex, BMI, ethnicity, family history of diabetes and anti-hypertensive use. This software calculates the risk score for all those aged 40-75 years old excluding those with known diabetes, the terminally ill and those coded with gestational diabetes using the data stored within your practices electronic medical records. The software also analyses any existing OGTT/HbA1c/glucose data as many people will have been screened already and also to identify anyone who may have existing diabetes which has been missed. The software outputs an Excel spread sheet which enables you to rank those stored within your practice records by risk. This allows you to invite those at greatest risk for screening, i.e. you could initially invite within the top 10% in your practice.
