The East of England Clinical Network for Diabetes has a vision to improve quality of life and outcomes for patients by driving out unacceptable variation in pathways of care; reducing inequality of access to all aspects of care, and redesigning the way we work with primary care.
Our strategic aims are to:
- Supporting the roll out and management of the Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) and the Treatment and Care Programme.
- Supporting delivery of the sustainability and transformation partnerships process in line with the ‘Aide Memoire’, support the review of local pathways against optimal diabetes treatment working with the RightCare programme
- Supporting CCGs identified through the Assessment Framework as having poor outcomes using data, education and peer support. Using examples ‘Best practice’ bringing together commissioners and providers to improve outcomes
- Offer clinical expertise and advise to urgent and emergency networks as appropriate.
