Diabetes Week 2017 - Know diabetes, fight diabetes

Diabetes Week 2017 was 11th to 17th June, and the theme this year was 'Know Diabetes, fight diabetes' where people with the condition were encouraged to find out more about the life-changing complications that could have been avoided or delayed if they'd had the right knowledge and support to manage their diabetes. One of these is sight loss.

Diabetic Eye Screening Wales is designed to detect sight threatening retinopathy at an early stage before visual loss occurs. Every eligible, registered person with diabetes in Wales aged 12 years and older is invited for regular retinal screening. The service is community based, delivering from clinics sites that are chosen to allow patients reasonable and equitable access. For more information this service, visit the Eye Care Wales website.
