County Durham & Darlington Diabetes Information and Education Team (DIET)


County Durham & Darlington (CDD) Integrated Diabetes Service implemented a five-year model in 2016/17, recognising that North Durham, Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield (DDES) and Darlington Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) needed to improve the uptake of patients being referred and attending structured diabetes education programmes. Capacity to deliver sessions had been problematic, with declining numbers of educators and long wait times. In 2017 NHS England funding was secured to double the places from 720 to 1,440 in County Durham and Darlington, with the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust (CDDFT) Diabetes Information and Education Team (DIET) providing a single point of access. All referrals for structured education would come through this hub.
