Diabetes UK will attend the prestigious Innovation Expo at London’s ExCeL on 18 to 19 June.
In June 2008, Lord Darzi published the Next Stage Review which identified the need to accelerate the adoption and diffusion of innovation across the NHS. As a result, the Expo will help encourage and inspire delegates who have influence in the NHS to interact with the latest innovative thinking, evidence and best practice.
David Jones, User Involvement Manager at Diabetes UK and speaker at the event, said: “This is a great opportunity to show case the importance of user involvement, putting people with diabetes at the heart of decision making about the services they receive. We work with NHS partners nationally, regionally and in local NHS organisations to help build robust user involvement systems to ensure that people are involved in the decisions that affect them.”
“Diabetes UK has developed a series of innovative partnerships with the NHS to deliver this work. Our seminar will focus on the things that can help you get involvement happening locally, the practical approaches we have taken to deliver projects and the successes and lessons learned.”
Diabetes UK is also exhibiting in the main hall showcasing how its services can benefit the NHS.
