Patients want say in services

23rd March 2010

The results of a survey of 1,000 diabetic patients by Diabetes UK Scotland have shown many would like an opportunity to discuss their care.

The survey showed 72% of patients would like to talk about their condition, although 42% said they were not given time to discuss their illness or care when they were diagnosed. Jane-Claire Judson, national director of Diabetes UK Scotland, said: "People diagnosed with a lifelong and complex condition like diabetes can undergo a wide range of emotions and it is important that they can access the right support at the right time."
