The National Pregnancy in Diabetes Audit Report 2015 was published on 21 October 2016. Despite agreed national guidelines, the report published in October indicates that women who became pregnant between 1 January and 31 December 2015 were unprepared. In some cases this resulted in an increased risk of congenital abnormalities, stillbirths and large babies. The figures are based on more than 3,000 pregnancies recorded during the 12 month period and other findings which can be found in the 2015 report.

The Breast and Cosmetic Implant Registry (BCIR) launched in October 2016.
