Welsh Government publishes updated Diabetes Delivery Plan

The Diabetes Delivery Plan for Wales has been updated. In Wales, over seven per cent of the population aged 17 or over live with diabetes, and this number is predicted to rise. The plan aims to reduce this rate of increase, and also to reduce the chance of people with diabetes developing serious complications such as sight loss.

Service actions aimed at reducing the risk of sight loss include a campaign in multiple languages to raise awareness of the importance of regular eye screening, and a requirement for health boards to ensure 100% referral to eye screening at diagnosis of diabetes. You can find out more and read the Delivery Plan here.
