NHS 'Open for business' diabetes materials - 05.06.2020

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a decrease in people accessing NHS services for a range of conditions that are not related to coronavirus.

This appears to be impacting: adults and children attending at A&E departments for urgent and emergency medical issues, including serious conditions such as stroke and heart attacks; cancer patients attending their ongoing treatments; expectant mothers attending for regular scans.

The diabetes phase tells those that have diabetes that it’s important to attend their routine appointments and if they have any concerns about their diabetes, not to delay and to contact their GP practice or diabetes team. Additionally, materials are also included to highlight the symptoms of diabetes - asking people to look out for the '4 Ts' and not to delay, but to contact their GP practice or NHS 111 if they have the signs.

Materials specifically related to the other phases of this activity can be found here.

The campaign title ‘open for business’ is not used within the campaign messages.
