‘Your 9 Key Checks’, What They Are And Why They Are Important
Many people, whether they have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, do not realise that there are 9 key health checks/tests which they are entitled to at least each year or why these are necessary.
These are laid down in three documents:
- The NHS Constitution.
- The NICE Quality Standards for Adults with Diabetes.
- The Equality Act 2010
While the above three documents in themselves do not specify which tests/checks people with diabetes should have, they lay down the basis for a person’s right to have them. Download the IDDT publication ‘‘Your 9 Key Checks’, What They Are And Why They Are Important’ to find out more.
