The management of adult diabetes services in the NHS

Progress has been made in reducing the risk of death for people with diabetes.

The additional risk of diabetes-related complications has been stable or has reduced for most complications, according to this report. However, there are still 22,000 people estimated to be dying each year from diabetes-related causes that could potentially be avoided.

The report finds that performance in delivering key care processes and achieving treatment standards, which help to minimise the risk of diabetes patients developing complications in the future, is no longer improving.
