Diabetes Needs Assessment 2017

DiabetesAbout 7% of the adult population of Swindon have been diagnosed with diabetes, although some people may also have the condition without realising it. The proportion of people affected is likely to increase in the future. In Swindon there are some very good services for diabetes but there is also room for improvement.

The 2017 Needs Assessment and Bulletin report on the prevalence of diabetes, the pattern of complications and the delivery of the checks which can help prevent complications. Good practice in Swindon is described and recommendations for future local action are made.  The 2017 version updates the previous needs assessment carried out in 2013.

Additonally, Public Health England have produced an interactive data tool for diabetes.
