West Hampshire Community Diabetes Service received Diabetes Transformation funding to improve outcomes for people living with diabetes (blood pressure, cholesterol and HbA1c). A primary care cluster model called WISDOM (West Hants Improving Shared Diabetes Outcome Measures) was designed, with quarterly meetings to target patients requiring treatment escalation. To support WISDOM, a new group education session called WISER (West Hants Interactive Structured Education Refresher), was introduced for Type 2 diabetes patients. The goal was to offer education to people who had not had access to education in the past or who were not achieving their treatment targets.
The programme provided clear information about diabetes as a cardiovascular disease with particular focus on linking blood pressure, cholesterol and HbA1c. Help to make sustainable lifestyle changes and medication concordance were included.
