Diabetes

Overview

Diabetes is a high priority for the health care economy across the North West Coast.

The main priorities for the Diabetes Network include prevention, treatment and care (multidisciplinary footcare teams, diabetes inpatient nurse specialists, structured education and treatment targets). We work in collaboration with health care providers, including Hospitals, GP’s, Commissioners as well as voluntary organisations and members of the public to work towards reducing the numbers of avoidable deaths by treating and managing patients in the right place at the right time and by the right person
