Diabetes care ineffective despite better access to services


You can have all the targets you want, but at the end of the day if patients do not play their part in managing their illness, no target will ever be met. It is a symptom of this damned nanny state that people never seem to accept their responsibility and expect that no matter how badly they behave someone will always pick up the pieces and someone else will always be blamed. Young people with diabetes are notoriously famous for not complying with their treatment, and yet nurses are always being blamed for these people, 'not being cared for'. It used to be said that if you don't care about yourself, why expect others to care for you. everyone has to take responsibility and young diabetics are no different, so just pack it in beating up on nurses when targets are not met, we do the best we can but you can't make a silk purse from a pigs ear.
