We have learnt in the news this week that there are 4 million people in the UK living with diabetes, a further 12 million are at risk of getting type 2 diabetes in the future.
Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that 170 people every week are losing a limb because of diabetes, it is responsible for 26,000 early deaths per year alongside serious complications such as blindness, amputation and stroke. The NHS is now expected to care for more people than ever before with diabetes.
NHS Trusts are facing a massive increase in the cost of treating type 2 diabetes. Inevitably an increase in demand for services in some cases is resulting in poor levels of care which can have devastating and avoidable consequences.
