trained workforce. Patient education models are currently being made available locally for use by the national health service. This should help primary care trusts to meet the planning and priorities framework target of having practice based registers and systematic treatment, including structured education, in place for people with diabetes by 2006.

"Skills for Health" has been commissioned by the care group workforce team to develop competence frameworks for the diabetes workforce.

David Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what guidance has been given to NHS trusts on the provision of (a) appropriate clothing and (b) other personal items to patients with mental health problems on their return to the community; 
Ms Rosie Winterton [holding answer 24 March 2004]: As outlined in the National Service Framework for Mental Health (1999), trusts should ensure that appropriate organisational arrangements are in place to secure good standards of privacy and dignity for hospital patients.
The care programme approach requires patients' health and social care needs to be fully assessed and addressed in their care plans. Care plans should be reviewed regularly, particularly upon discharge from hospital. This principle is embodied in "Effective Care Co-ordination in Mental Health Services (1999)".
