Diabetes: 'More co-ordinated approach' needed

The Health and Social Care Committee has recommended that the Welsh Government take a 'firmer hand' in monitoring the provision of diabetes services among local health boards, in order to tackle rising levels of diabetes cases in Wales.

It has called for an emphasis on sharing best practice, when the Welsh Government announces its forthcoming Diabetes Delivery Plan.

The Committee has also recommended a 'more co-ordinated approach' across all healthcare providers, including GP and community pharmacies, to assist in monitoring each patient's condition and medication.
