The roadshows, which will visit Cardiff, Carmarthen, Newport, Wrexham, Swansea and Bangor, will help to disseminate information about the Diabetes NSF Delivery Strategy and share best practice. The roadshows, which will visit Cardiff, Carmarthen, Newport, Wrexham, Swansea and Bangor, will help to disseminate information about the Diabetes NSF Delivery Strategy and share best practice. Launching the roadshow Jane Hutt said: “The response we’ve had to the roadshows has exceeded all our expectations and is a strong indicator of the interest and strength of feeling people have about diabetes. “The NSF Delivery Strategy was launched in March and was the second part of the Diabetes NSF which aims to reduce the inequalities in health care. Diagnoses made by the addition of direct ophthalmoscopy and/or slit lamp included macula red dots, macula hard exudates hidden by lens opacities, peripheral neovascularisation and suspicious peripheral pigmented lesion. The standards document “gives people a clear direction of travel”, she said. It is this good work that I want to see continue as everyone with diabetes deserves access to high quality care and support.
The Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) was formed in 1993. By March 2006 practice based registers should also cover the majority of patients at high risk of CHD, particularly those with hypertension, diabetes and a BMI greater than 30. It is these issues that I hope will be discussed during the roadshows and I would encourage those attending to talk about their own individual experiences, both good and bad.
