Together we can tackle diabetes

One in seven of us are at high risk of developing diabetes and that number is rising. Diabetes costs the NHS over £10 billion a year of which up to 80% is spent on preventable complications (Diabetes UK). Population profiling, joining up technology and patient involvement can all help to reduce the devastating effects of diabetes.

  • involve patients in their own care.
