Diabetes Services in Hywel Dda

David Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Hywel Dda University Health Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Hywel Dda Local Health Board,

I understand since the abolishment of the LDSAGs, Diabetes Planning
and Delivery Groups (DPDGs) were to be set-up to lead, manage and
report on improvements in diabetes services. These DPDGs will put
in place delivery plans for the NSF Standards and will lead and
manage the implementation of the Plan.

Could you therefore please provide me with:

1. The members of the LPDGs within this LHB
2. Any published plans they have agreed on.
3. Any plans for diabetes service delivery within the newly formed Network community groups.

One further request if possible is a list of practices in the LHB
that have taken up any diabetes enhanced services (DES).

Thanks you for your time on this.

Yours faithfully,

David Smith
