And today there is another Audit Report like many others before saying that even the nine standards of care the departemt of health asks doctors to do for patients with Diabetes eg checking feet, cholesterol, BP, eyes etc-= are not done in just under half of people.
The BBC news report says
The report said the NHS was spending at least £3.9bn a year on diabetes - three times more than ministers had estimated.But the watchdog said better management of patients could save £170m a year through fewer hospital admissions and less complex treatment. About 24,000 unnecessary deaths could be prevented too.
More than 2.3m people are diagnosed as having diabetes.
SO why is it so hard to implement Diabetes guidelines?http://www.nao.org.uk/publications/1213/adult_diabetes_services.aspx
