Type 2 Diabetes
Over three million people in England already have Type 2 diabetes and, according to Diabetes UK, it’s estimated that as many as four million people could have the disease by 2025.
If current trends persist, one in every three people will be obese by 2034 and one in ten will develop Type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes already accounts for around 10 per cent of the annual NHS budget. This is nearly £10 billion a year. 90 per cent of people with diabetes have Type 2, which is largely preventable.
There is now an Urgent Primary Care Service at Solihull Hospital. This service began on Saturday 29 October 2016.
This service brings together all the urgent care services under one roof within the hospital following the closure of the temporary Walk-in Centre building.
NHS Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is supporting Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in March to raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer.
