Traditional diabetes pathways require formal referral for secondary care opinion, subject to the 18-week referral to treatment targets and are prone to high non-attendance rates. With a rural geography and an island population, travel times are a particular issue for people in Cornwall and IOS. This pilot was established to develop a pathway that allowed care to be delivered closer to the patient’s home with a reduced turnaround time for advice, that was sustainable in terms of clinical workload and increasing patient numbers and that reduced outpatient costs.
