RCPCH and the National Children and Young People’s Diabetes Network established this programme in April 2018 to help drive outcomes improvements and to encourage service change in paediatric diabetes care in England and Wales.
We set out to improve multidisciplinary care for children and young people with diabetes in the NHS, reduce unwarranted variations and involve families in service improvement in a developmental way.
We made innovative adaptions to keep paediatric diabetes on the radar. Since the start of the pandemic, we ran our peer reviews and the QI Collaborative virtually, using feedback to support all participating teams.
Look out soon for our impact and self assessment reports, plus a podcast about our collective achievements. In the meantime, our sincere thanks to all who participated so professionally and enthusiastically.
