The publication of these original guidelines in April 2008 and the collaboration which led up to their publication fuelled an already existing interest in the provision of Integrated Care for patients with Type 2 Diabetes in Ireland. In 2010 the work of the Expert Advisory Group in Diabetes of the HSE was completed and this led onto the formation of the National Clinical Programme for Diabetes (NCPD). The aim of the National Clinical Programme for Diabetes is to ascertain and reduce the prevalence of diabetes in Ireland and to reduce the burden of diabetes on both affected individuals and the State by reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with Diabetes.
