Improving inpatient care for people with diabetes

Over a million people with diabetes were admitted to hospital in England in 2017.

A hospital stay for a person with diabetes can be a frightening experience and it is easy to understand why. In 2017, an estimated 9,600 people required rescue treatment after falling into a coma following a severe hypoglycaemic attack and 2,200 people suffered from Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) due to under treatment with insulin.

We can and must do better for people with diabetes in hospital.
