In the belief that there was need for diabetic clinics in general practice, 14 of them have been started in the Wolverhampton area. Provided that patients with diabetes that is difficult to control, or who need extra care, remain the responsibility of the hospital diabetic department, this system is an advantage for the hospital department, general practice, and the patient. We believe that many patients are now getting better care in general-practice clinics than they were in the hospital department.
