The Super Six model
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust
Description of innovation
The Super Six model of diabetes care in South East Hampshire and Portsmouth based itself on defining clearly with local GPs, Commissioners and specialists as to which services needed to exist within the confines of an acute Trust, due to its MDT setting or higher expertise involved.

The six services were:

•      Inpatient diabetes

•      Foot diabetes (with predefined criteria)

•      Poorly controlled Type 1 diabetes, including adolescents

•      Insulin Pump services

•      Low eGFR or patients on renal dialysis

•      Antenatal diabetes

This involved any other patients with diabetes being managed in the community by a combination of virtual means (emails/phones) and GP surgery visits.

The GP surgery visits were used primarily for education with options given to GPs and practice nurses such as virtual clinics, framework targets and educational session on area(s) of diabetes management of surgery’s choice.
