Many of these outcomes are avoidable with better management of the condition and coordination of diabetes care services. Recommendations in this report, such as systems to support virtual clinics, can help the NHS as it faces the substantial challenge of recovering services following the COVID-19 pandemic, while remaining ready for any future surges, by operating more effectively and safely than ever before.
