This year the APPG for Diabetes launched an investigation under the theme: Diabetes Care: improving standards and reducing variation, which is ongoing.
Our next meeting will take place on Wednesday, 7 September 2016 from 5.30-6.30pm with the theme: Improving standards in diabetes care: putting learning into practice.
This will be the fourth and final meeting of this investigation. The focus of this meeting will be on how existing knowledge and learning has been applied to improve care and will present case studies of how Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have reduced the variation in care in practice.
CCGs are responsible for implementing the commissioning roles as set out in the Health and Social Care Act 2012. This includes working with providers and stakeholders to develop services that support the needs of their patient population. People with diabetes rely on a range of services due to the complexity of the condition and how it is managed. The Group will hear from speakers who have policy and practical expertise in driving improvements in care and improving treatment outcomes.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to limits on room capacity, please note that admittance will be on a first come, first served and one organisation, one person basis.
