The percentage of the population diagnosed with diabetes doubled between 1994 and 2009 and is continuing to increase which could have a significant impact on NHS resources. Too many diabetic people are developing complications because they are not receiving the straightforward care and support they need. The Department estimates that 24,000 people with diabetes die prematurely each year because their diabetes has not been managed effectively and it's estimated 80% of the costs of diabetes in the NHS are attributable to the treatment and management of serious, yet avoidable, diabetic complications. These costs will continue to increase as the number of diabetic people rises as will premature deaths. The National Service Framework for Diabetes, 2001 set out minimum standards for good diabetes care, including nine basic care processes which check for the early signs of avoidable diabetic complications as well as treatment targets for the management of blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol to minimise the risk of diabetic complications developing. Progress in delivering these standards of care and in achieving treatment targets has been poor. There is no strong national leadership, no effective accountability arrangements for commissioners, and no appropriate performance incentives for providers. The Committee saw no evidence that the Department will ensure that these issues are addressed effectively in the new NHS structure. Variation in the level of progress across the NHS also means that there is an unacceptable "postcode lottery" of care

A masterwork of W. G. Sebald, now with a gorgeous new cover by the famed designer Peter Mendelsund The four long narratives in The Emigrants appear at first to be the straightforward biographies of four Germans in exile. Sebald reconstructs the lives of a painter, a doctor, an elementary-school teacher, and Great Uncle Ambrose. Following (literally) in their footsteps, the narrator retraces routes of exile which lead from Lithuania to London, from Munich to Manchester, from the South German provinces to Switzerland, France, New York, Constantinople, and Jerusalem. Along with memories, documents, and diaries of the Holocaust, he collects photographs—the enigmatic snapshots which stud The Emigrants and bring to mind family photo albums. Sebald combines precise documentary with fictional motifs, and as he puts the question to realism, the four stories merge into one unfathomable requiem.
