GPC to oppose NICE bundled diabetes indicators during contract negotiations


I vote we boycott all diabetic checks and just measure what we feel like, if we feel the patient may benefit. On that basis I would do regular Hba1c and BP checks but would not bother with anything else as their worth, done repeatedly, is dubious. This could backfire on the Government as they will be perceived as presiding over a worse service for diabetic patients.
