This annual report shows there has been little overall improvement in diabetes healthcare in the past year with 40% of people with diabetes not getting the NICE recommended checks. The report also highlights how preventing Type 2 diabetes needs to be a greater priority to help reduce the burden of the condition on NHS resources in the future. It calls for clinical commissioning groups to set themselves performance improvement targets and implement diabetes action plans. The charity is also urging CCGs to ensure all people with diabetes have access to the support they need to manage their condition effectively, and that the local health system is designed to deliver this.
