Newham Diabetes Transformation Programme – supporting young people (16-25 years) with Type 1 Diabetes


Newham, east London, has a young population (>40% under 25 years) with significant deprivation and social inequality. Recent migration from Somalia, Eastern Europe and Africa has seen a rising prevalence of type 1 diabetes (T1D). NHS England funded a Diabetes Transformation Programme which has: determined the number of young people with T1D, including those ’lost to follow-up’; identified and addressed gaps in service, particularly mental health needs, education and support for A&E attenders; developed a Youth Worker role; increased patient engagement through a Peer Support programme; redesigned referral pathways across primary and secondary care, and used online consultations for more flexible care.
