We are planning to publish our progress report on the Diabetes National Service Framework during summer 2008.
Screening for diabetic retinopathy was a target in the Diabetes National Service Framework and has been included in the Operating Framework for the NHS in England 2008-09. Copies of this publication are available in the Library. Data from the local delivery plan returns (end March 2008) indicate that 89.4 per cent. of people with diabetes have been offered screening for diabetic retinopathy in the previous 12 months.
