“The increase in the number of people with diabetes in the last 20 years has been unprecedented. This has brought with it a significant cost in terms of people’s health and wellbeing.” – The Care Quality Commission
Diabetes and related complications cost the NHS £10 billion a year, representing 10% of the annual budget for England and Wales. With the number of patients expected to rise to 4.6 million by 2030, the healthcare system faces a serious challenge.
In England, 90% of those affected have Type 2 diabetes. As the NHS moves towards a more sustainable prevention based model, more work needs to be done to identify those at risk of developing the condition in order to provide support and guidance.
The 2016 Care Quality Commission report “My Diabetes, My Care” found that while diabetes care in England is generally good, “support is not always flexible and responsive enough to meet everyone’s individual needs”. The CQC has urged local commissioning groups to help patients draft individual care plans and to invest in more community based services.
Join us for the Diabetes Conference 2018 where expert speakers will explain how the NHS can transform its approach to both prevention and treatment. Understand how to move towards a patient centred care model, identify vulnerable groups in need of additional support and see how new technology can facilitate self-management.
