Local NHS services are constantly evolving to meet the needs of their community, improve the efficiency of care and to better align themselves to support achievement of government policy.
Care for people with diabetes is no exception. There is a huge range of service improvement activities being undertaken at local, regional and national levels within the health service to improve a variety of elements of care that people receive.
This ranges from complex programmes of cultural change, such as the national Year of Care programme, or work taking place under the auspices of Co-Creating Health, to more localised interventions improving access to services or enhancing people’s experiences of care.
Diabetes UK is committed to improving care for all people with diabetes and is keen that learning from one area or programme is shared throughout the NHS.
As well as reducing health inequalities and minimising duplication of efforts and resources, this part of the website is a forum for which people can get recognition for the huge amount of work people undertake to improve the way in which the NHS provides support and care for people with diabetes.
