New resource for Kent and Medway
A new resource for diabetes healthcare professionals working in Kent and Medway has been launched.
The Paula Carr Diabetes Trust, a charity dedicated to supporting people with the condition, has put together a new website for healthcare professionals across the area. The website provides information about primary care education, resources and information on local news and events.
A Foundation and Advanced course is now available locally for Primary Care Professionals. The training has been developed to support a new Integrated Care Pathway for diabetes in East Kent.
The charity has also put together ‘Patient packs’ containing information for newly-diagnosed people with diabetes in response to demand, which can be ordered via the website.
Claire Martin, Project Manager at the charity, said: “What we wanted to do is expand the number of opportunities for people with diabetes to get information. We are right at the start of this new venture but the website is something tangible for health professionals to go to and look at.”
The Paula Carr Diabetes Trust is an independent charitable trust supporting people in Kent and Medway living with diabetes.
The Trust was started in 1989 in memory of Paula Carr who was diagnosed with diabetes in 1984 at the age of nine but tragically died following a hypoglycaemic episode two months short of her thirteenth birthday.
