Final APPG diabetes care meeting set
The fourth and final meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group’s (APPG) investigation looking into diabetes care is set to take place in September.
Improving Standards in Diabetes Care: Putting Learning into Practice has been scheduled for Wednesday, September 7 at the Houses of Parliament.
The focus of this meeting will be on how existing knowledge and learning has been applied to improve care.
Case studies of how Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have reduced variation in care in practice will also be presented.
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.
The APPG is calling for case studies and written evidence from people living with diabetes, healthcare professionals, academics, commissioners and providers to better understand how to improve standards and tackle variations in care.
