The Delivery Strategy offers a framework for the NHS to build capacity to:
An All-Wales Patient Reference Group was also set up in 2003 to discuss any issues arising from policy documents produced by the Welsh Assembly Government. The group consists of patients from all over Wales who also share best practice. From 2007 to 2009, this group will form the patient reference group for Diabetes Retinopathy Screening Services.
The XPERT programme was also launched in 2007 to provide education to all healthcare professionals across Wales to enable them to deliver structured advice to patients with Type 2 diabetes and to issue them with the necessary equipment to deal with Type 2 diabetes. This programme is taking place in 22 areas across Wales and the DESMOND programme is being delivered over 4 areas in Wales.
The Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating (DAFNE) programme is also being delivered in 2 areas in Wales and the remaining 20 areas will deliver Bournemouth programme called the Dose Adjustment for Your Daily Diet (DAFYDD) programme.
