Community initiative of the year
This category was open to any community initiative that has improved access and delivered positive outcomes and change for people with diabetes. Entries were invited from those working in the health service, for a patient group, or in industry.
Winner: 3 Dimensions of Care for Diabetes (3DFD) by Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Many people with persistent, poorly controlled diabetes also have additional psychological and social problems, which impinge on their ability to manage their diabetes care effectively. 3DFD is a service that fully integrates medical, psychological and social care for this group of patients with the aim of improving diabetes control, quality of life and quality in care with associated cost efficiencies. Patient satisfaction has been unanimous and the model has been adopted for its sustainability potential by the Guys and St Thomas Diabetes Modernisation Initiative.
Second place: Integrated Community Diabetes Service (ICDS) by University Hospitals of Leicester
Leicester has a multicultural population with a high incidence of diabetes. NHS Leicester City sought to provide quality diabetes care closer to home to meet the needs of different communities and address health inequalities. Following a tender process, the University of Leicester Hospitals Trust working with the PCT developed ICDS. By providing integrated care using self-management principles they increased the capability of primary care to deliver intermediate care and reduce hypoglycaemia admissions. Patient satisfaction scores and confidence also improved.
