|Ayrshire and Arran||2,234||9||0.4%|
|Dumfries and Galloway||871||12||1.4%|
|Greater Glasgow and Clyde||5,923||56||0.9%|

The revised Diabetes Action Plan, which we expect to be published shortly, will include a section on intensive insulin therapy as well as details of each NHS board’s planned investment in intensive insulin therapy, and the associated structured education up to 2012-13.
