Diabetes patients want more 'say in services'

NHS service to let patients have their say

Diabetes patients want more say in the way local NHS services for their condition are run, a charity has said. A report into care for people with diabetes suggested most were not offered education on their condition, but praised improvements in care.

Diabetes UK Scotland released the results of the survey of 1,000 people in its Better Diabetes Care report. The charity has urged the NHS to improve services, and the health of people with diabetes. The full story is on the BBC website.
