New 'Information prescriptions'


From February 2015, people with diabetes who do not have their condition under control will be given personal action plans from their GP to improve their health. 

Under this new scheme, launched by Diabetes UK, if someone is not meeting their targets for blood pressure, cholesterol or blood glucose then an alert will flash up on their GP’s computer advising them that their patient could benefit from an ‘information prescription’.

The simple and practical one page document, which will be tailored to each patient, will contain the crucial information you need about how to better manage your health, plus an action plan for improving your health that you agree with their GP.  The document should be printed off and taken away by patients.
