|Groundbreaking on line health consultation|
Tony Colman MP urges constituents to participate
Britain's 1.8 million people with diabetes are getting the opportunity to feed into a new consultation with a view to influencing the future of their diabetes services. The groundbreaking online consultation brings together policy makers, patients and carers to seek opinions on experiences of diabetes care and how the targets in the National Service Framework for Diabetes are being met.
Tony Colman MP said, " Considerable progress has been made in services for people with diabetes, but it's vital that Government and the NHS hears from a cross section of people so that services are developed around the people who use them. The involvement and engagement of people from Putney with diabetes, health professionals and other stakeholders is vital to the continued improvement of services and delivery of NSF targets".
MP added, "We
must ensure patients' needs are heard. This initiative enables Parliament,
Government and the NHS to connect with grassroots opinions, so that we
know what works well and the areas that need further development.
