I was delighted to see the level of attendees from many different disciplines at the webinar, which was testament to the speakers and their expertise and the keen interest in primary care as well as others involved in the pathway. Improving the perioperative pathway for diabetes patients is a vital piece of the jigsaw, and that means getting the pathway right from primary care onwards.
