North Hampshire CCG have identified improving outcomes in diabetes care as a key priority. As such they have redesigned their pathway for people living with diabetes to ensure that patients are able to access the majority of services within community based settings, and that services meet NICE quality standards.
Education and support for diabetes patients
In December 2012 the CCG joint-hosted an event with Diabetes UK for around 40 local people with diabetes. From this the CCG gained valuable information on people’s experiences of local diabetes services, and their views on the proposed pathway which will influence the way services are re-designed.

Following this Diabetes UK supported the CCG to host a focus group In November 2013 with a sample of the diabetes population to influence the content of North Hampshire’s diabetes webpages, the structured patient education programmes delivered in the area and to discuss the establishment of an ongoing support group for people with diabetes.
