PCTs fail to raise diabetes awareness30th March 2009
A study by the charity Diabetes UK has found 53% of primary care trusts are failing to "raise awareness" of diabetes.
The Access to Health Services report said a third of trusts did not have programmes to ensure type 2 diabetes was diagnosed early.
Douglas Smallwood, chief executive of Diabetes UK, said: "PCTs have an important role to play in raising awareness of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and informing people of how simple lifestyles changes, such as eating a healthy diet and being physically active, can help reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes."
