Nurses to lead on diabetes project

  • Comment

Nurses at three primary care trusts are to lead a major initiative to help diabetes patients have a say in improving their local services.

The Diabetes UK user involvement in local diabetes care project is due to get underway during the next few weeks.

It will involve developing a structured process for patients to feedback their experience of NHS services, how they manage their condition and their cultural needs.

Three organisations have been chosen to take part in the project – NHS Lincolnshire, NHS Hammersmith and Fulham, and the North Mersey Diabetes Network which consists of Liverpool PCT and NHS Sefton and NHS Knowsley.

NHS Hammersmith and Fulham diabetes nurse consultant Grace Vanterpool will lead the two-year project for her area. She said: “It’s really important we put our patients at the heart of developing services of the future.

“This is about giving patients services they want to use, services they can access and services which reflects the goals of their diabetes management,” she said.
