It is claimed hundreds of people with diabetes in Cornwall aren't getting the right checks.

Diabetes UK says they're being left at risk of heart disease, strokes or going blind.

It is because only a third are getting all the recommended tests.

Liz Redfern, CBE, Director of Patient Care and Nursing at NHS South of England, said: “Diabetes need not take over your life but it cannot go ignored.

“It is important that everyone has access to the same high quality care wherever they live, that they attend check ups and follow NHS advice to ensure that their diabetes is kept in check.

“This is because uncontrolled diabetes can lead to significant health complications.

“The number of people with diabetes is increasing and this is a major concern for future healthcare. We want more people to be aware of early symptoms and how they can help prevent diabetes through a healthy lifestyle.”
