Let’s tell you a bit about OUR VISION

The ambition of the Diabetes programme is to achieve the best possible outcomes and quality of life for people living with, or at risk of developing diabetes.  Quality of life and outcomes are vitally important for people living with a long-term condition like diabetes.

We want to do this by reducing the prevalence of type 2 diabetes because there are significant health inequalities in our district.  For adults living with diabetes, whether type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes, we want to support them to slow progression of the illness and remain in good health for as long as possible.  We also want to prevent the complications associated with diabetes such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, blindness and amputations.

We currently have four workstreams focusing on:

  1. Preventing type 2 diabetes in people at risk
  2. Quality primary care for people living with diabetes
  3. Integrated multi-disciplinary community care for people needing more specialist support
  4. Podiatry

We are working in partnership with Diabetes UK to listen and learn from our local communities and raise awareness of diabetes.
