Diabetes Super Six
South Warwickshire CCG with the practice is looking to improve the quality of care for diabetic patients to ensure that people receive the most effective and appropriate treatment.
We are looking at how patients receive specialist diabetes advice. Traditionally, diabetes care is provided in a hospital setting. This review of diabetes services will look at how to boost the services available to patients at their local surgery. We have identified ‘super six’ areas of diabetes we will focus on:
- Antenatal diabetes
- Diabetic foot care
- Renal care (estimated glomerular filtration rate less than 30)
- Insulin pumps
- Type 1/adolescent diabetes (unstable control)
- Inpatient diabetic care.
The project will aim to reduce the number of diabetic patients who receive treatment at hospital by ensuring that patients are diagnosed early, are taught to manage their condition effectively and that effective treatment is available at their local GP practice. This model of care has previously been successfully used in Hampshire, and we are keen to use the best practice example locally in South Warwickshire.
Working groups of GPs, diabetic nurses and patients have recently met to discuss how services currently meet patient needs and how outcomes for diabetics could be improved using this new model of care. The views of diabetic patients locally will be important to develop the best proposals for the future and the CCG will be talking to as many people as possible over the coming months
