That’s an increase of more than 163,000 compared to 2012, the biggest single year increase since 2008 – and worryingly does not include people with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes, warned the charity. Diabetes UK is calling for people to undergo an NHS health check and urgent improvements to be made to the hospital care for diabetic patients.
