Health Minister Michelle O'Neill is delighted to present a Diabetes Strategic Framework for the north of Ireland. Diabetes is a condition which we know affects at least 90,000 people living here. Every day here, on average, 10 people are newly diagnosed and £1 million is spent on services to meet the needs of people already living with the condition. The case for a fresh, coherent and sustainable approach to prevention, early intervention and to the design and delivery of services is now an absolute imperative for our Health and Social Care system. In light of this, we have listened to people living with diabetes and their representatives, and to our staff and other experts, and have produced a blueprint for the future which I believe will set the direction for achieving real and significant improvement in outcomes for people living with diabetes.
