New guidelines for Type 2 issued by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence
Wednesday 02 December 2015
New clinical guidance published today (December 2) by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) may be “putting unnecessary obstacles in the way of people with Type 2 diabetes getting best care”, according to Diabetes UK.
The guidance, designed to help healthcare professionals support people with Type 2 diabetes and provide commissioners with a framework to commission appropriate services, has finally been published after long delays. This was because contributors, including Diabetes UK, argued that further changes needed to be made to make the final guidelines more practical in line with other international guidelines.
