County Durham and Darlington Diabetes Alliance

by County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust

In response to the growing prevalence of type 2 diabetes in County Durham and Darlington, a new clinically-led model was developed. A collaboration between local CCGs and Acute NHS Foundation Trusts, with primary care input from local GP Federations and GP practices, the model supports the delivery of diabetes services within primary care, providing specialist resources and developing skills within the primary care workforce to support the provision of high quality patient care.

Judges comment:

"This young entry shows an impressive scale with in excess of a 40,000 patient population. It is innovative and an excellent collaboration. There is a robust governance process that encourages good communication across all parties. It truly has the patient at the centre of their focus."

Hypoglycaemia…Old Problem, New Solutions for Long Term Care Settings

by Nobles Hospital, Isle of Man

This educational programme for residential nursing home staff aimed to reduce severe hypoglycaemia and improve levels of glycaemic monitoring among the Long-Term Care (LTC) population. Provided free of charge and delivered on site, it prioritised residential homes in the first year (2013), with nursing home staff education being rolled out in 2014. Prior to this there were no opportunities for staff within this island community to receive any diabetes education prior to this.

Judges comment:

"Nobles Hospital have put together a cost effective and solid project, focusing on education and upskilling which helps sustainability. They tackled difficult issues and had good engagement with care homes."
