Bolton apparently cares for its diabetics in a ‘brilliant’ way, according to national and government experts. Services for diabetics have been closely monitored by the Department of Health since the inception of the diabetes national service framework that was launched four years ago.
The national clinical director for diabetes, Dr. Sue Roberts, reportedly commented: “The work being done by Bolton Primary Care Trust shows there is a great deal of good work going on for people with diabetes.”
Bolton has had an established diabetes network since the year 2000, with key specialist sessions held at GP practices. Furthermore, specialist nurses have been appointed to visit practices providing support, advice and training .
At the Bolton Primary Care Trust, diabetologist John Dean reportedly claimed: “It’s great for both staff and patients to know we are doing things in the right way, but it won’t make us complacent as there will be continued development and we recognise that more work needs to be done.”
