Information on the provision of psychological therapies as part of diabetes services is not collected centrally.

It is for individual clinical commissioning groups (CCG) to commission treatment and services for people with diabetes and they are best placed to identify what is needed in their local areas. In doing so, NHS England expects CCGs to take into account National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines. Those guidelines include the provision of psychological support as part of the management of diabetes.
