  • 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
