Tackling the Toughest of Times

by Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Read the case study

In 2013 our team published a paper showing outcomes had not improved in our clinic for young people aged 16 to 20 over the previous decade. So we made a number of changes, such as creating an age-specific structured education course and raising the profile of psychology. In doing so we’ve improved engagement with the clinic and its services, have better glycaemic control and results that are now better than the national average for this age group.

Judges comment:

"Sheffield Teaching Hospital’s empathy really came through in this entry. The judges thought the WICKED course was excellent and very innovative, especially considering the difficulty that often comes with working with young people. The spread to other areas such as Harrowgate and Leeds is good. It will be interesting to see what happens as participants in these programmes grow up."
