The Welsh Assembly has made a positive step forward in increasing awareness about diabetes management, by publishing new guidelines for the management of the disease amongst adults.
The All Wales Diabetes Consensus Group developed the material, and the new guidelines have been created to aid the National Health Service in improving high-quality diabetes treatment all over Wales.
As much as 5 per cent of the Welsh population are known to suffer from diabetes, with an estimated 50,000 people undiagnosed in the country. The Health Minister, Edwina Hart, reportedly commented: “These guidelines are specifically designed to support the NHS in delivering high-quality care for adults with diabetes across Wales, helping to support services to effectively plan, organise, and deliver care in a sustainable way. The guidelines will also help to develop a more-robust monitoring system for the delivery of the Diabetes National Service Framework, with the ultimate aim of improving services and care for people with diabetes in Wales.”
