12 What’s new SHIP link with GP network (last Wednesday of every month) One of the areas to be covered will be Diabetes Risk Assessment targeting 16-35 year olds

13 Local provision – what’s needed ? Gap between Primary and Secondary Care needs to be bridged by improving communication systems (GP education seminars / regular updating and evaluation meetings) Cohesion in services provided both in Primary and Secondary care - by Clinicians, Diabetes Specialist Dietetics, Physical Health Educators and Pharmaceutical companies working together, under the organised project of Diabetes Risk Assessment Framework.
