Midlands and East Regional Diabetes programme

Diabetes Improvement and Assurance Framework

The West Midlands Clinical Network has developed the Diabetes Improvement and Assurance Framework (DIAF), a new tool to complement existing information and assurance frameworks. The DIAF supports CCGs to focus on areas for improvement for their local diabetes patient population, and assists in the development of local improvement pathways and commissioning intentions. This is an evolving and ongoing programme of work.

Regional Diabetes event hailed a success

Over 120 delegates attended NHS England’s Midlands & East NHS Diabetes event on Friday 2nd December.

Attendees had an opportunity to network, receive updates on work taking place both nationally and regionally across diabetes prevention, treatment and care as well as learn about the plans for the wider diabetes treatment and care work programme.

Delegates included representatives from CCGs, GPs, Diabetologists, Nurses, Pharmacy colleagues, Public Health England, Local Authorities Public health, Diabetes UK, Academic Health Science Networks, Clinical Networks, NHS England and providers who deliver the NHS DPP programmes. We were pleased to see a number of patients had also taken time to come along.

The event was well received with delegates saying:

“the speakers were informative…clear presentations”

“good to hear the patient voice, Roger’s story was inspiring”

“useful national versus regional information”
