Diabetes 2015 – Care in Crisis
Almost 40 per cent of people with diabetes believe the NHS has “worsened” since the £1.1bn health service reforms, according to a new survey.
Around 2.5 million people with the condition have not received high-quality structured education despite the risk of serious complications. This has been shown in a wide-sweeping report laying bare the state of diabetes care in England.
The InDependent Diabetes Trust’s (IDDT) report, ‘Diabetes 2015: Care in Crisis’ based on a survey of more than 15,000 people, has revealed that nearly 40 percent were not given appropriate advice and information about diet and exercise at the time of diagnosis.
