“Diabetes is the fastest growing health threat facing our nation. Over 3 million people are living with diabetes in England. If their condition is managed they can live longer and fuller lives. The cost of diabetes to the NHS will continue to rise. In order to control these costs, the Department & NHS must take significant action to improve prevention and treatment for diabetes in the next couple of years.”
