NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens has said the health service needs to take urgent action to prevent the prospect of:
“condemning our children to a rising tide of avoidable diabetes”.
And that’s what we have already been doing at the Leicester Diabetes Centre. As a leading international centre of excellence in Type 2 diabetes research, we have pooled our expertise to develop a comprehensive set of commissioning resources aimed at preventing the condition.
Our suite of practical tools has been created as part of a five-year programme funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) and fits around the NICE algorithm for diagnosing Type 2 diabetes or identifying those at high risk of the condition.
