Diabetes Network and Model of Care
Wolverhampton Diabetes Network connects people with an interest in diabetes; people with diabetes, their families and carers, healthcare professionals and people working in related fields.
The key aim of the network is to improve the health and well being of people with diabetes in Wolverhampton. It considers the local issues and develops the local diabetes strategy in response to the local needs.
The network has several subgroups carrying out work on current priorities for Wolverhampton diabetes services. These are:
User and carer involvement
Paediatrics and young people’s services
Diabetes education for patients and health care professionals
Housebound diabetes care
Network board meetings are held twice a year giving people that are directly involved with diabetes care locally have the opportunity to come and work together.
