The report brings together evidence from recent national diabetes audit reports covering care processes and treatment targets, inpatient care, pregnancy and foot care.  It sets out actions to improve the delivery of the 15 healthcare essentials for adults with diabetes, and to improve care for children and young people. It makes calls to NHS England, local commissioners, GPs and other NHS providers to improve care and support for people with diabetes and on the prevention of Type 2 diabetes.
