Diabetes challenges for 2015 and beyond

A report from a diabetes charity argues that diabetes healthcare in England is leading to avoidable deaths, record rates of complications and huge costs to the NHS.

The findings of this research show that there has been very little overall improvement in diabetes healthcare in the past year, with 40% of people with diabetes still not getting the NICE recommended checks that they need to manage their condition. It calls for CCGs to set themselves performance improvement targets and implement diabetes action plans.
