BMJ News reports that "36 primary care trust areas in England (out of 151) recorded fewer than half of their patients as having had all their annual GP checks. In one trust—Mid Essex Primary Care Trust—only 16% of patients received all nine checks. By comparison 71% of patients in Darlington Primary Care Trust received all the checks in 2010-11."
What are the reasons behind diabetes patients not receiving the checks as recommended by NICE? Is diabetes being treated seriously enough? Are these too many tests to carry out? What are the risks of not carrying them out?
