National Diabetes Strategy
That this House is deeply concerned by the National Audit Office report, The management of adult diabetes services in the NHS, which found that NHS diabetes services in England are delivering poor performance against expected levels of care, high numbers of avoidable deaths and are not delivering value for money; notes that in 2009-10, there were an estimated 3.1 million people aged 16 years and older with diabetes in England, of which 2.34 million were diagnosed and 760,000 were undiagnosed; further notes that NHS spending on diabetes services in 2010 was at least 3.9 billion, or around 4 per cent of the NHS budget; and calls for the introduction of a new national diabetes strategy to replace the National Service Framework for Diabetes which is due to expire in 2013 to make diabetes a health service priority and deliver improvements in diabetes prevention and in the quality of care for patients.
