Since the launch of ourTaking Controlcampaign diabetes has been named as a national priority for the NHS in England. This means that local health bosses will now have to report and will be ranked on the number of people who attend diabetes education courses.
As it stands, too many people with diabetes are missing out on potentially life-saving education courses. Diabetes UK's Taking Control campaign urges people with diabetes to access education in their area and to demand courses if they are not currently available.
It's fantastic news for the campaign that diabetes has been named as a national priority and that local health bosses will be ranked on attendance at education courses. This success means that many more people will now be able to gain the knowledge and confidence to know their diabetes. You can see local area results on theMyNHSwesbite.
Join the campaign and take action to make sure that more people are offered and attend vital diabetes education courses.
