Campaigning for 15 healthcare essentials
David Edwards is a member of the Sutton and Merton Diabetes Network and is one of our amazing Diabetes Voices. He has campaigned tirelessly for everyone with diabetes to receive their 15 healthcare essentials, influencing retinal screening clinics in the area to hand out checklists to all patients attending their appointments.
David realised that there were some people who missed their appointments and were not receiving the checklist, so he persuaded clinics to send the checklist with every appointment letter as well as handing them out in clinics. This ensured more people were made aware of the minimum level of care they should receive. David has helped make more than 30,000 people in his area aware of the 15 healthcare essentials.
You could do the same in your area. To order copies of the 15 Healthcare Essentials checklist call us on 020 7424 1008 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
