Diabetes Event 23/08/2022

Do you have diabetes, and want to use your experience to shape services?

Whilst there has been some improvement in diabetes care, Rotherham still has worse outcomes and spends more on diabetes care than other areas. We would therefore like to invite you to a Diabetes Summit to consider what we next do in relation to diabetes care.

The summit will take place on Thursday 29th September 1:30 pm- 5:00 pm at New York Stadium, Rotherham United Football Club, S60 1FJ

Registration is at 1:15 pm, so the event can begin at 1:30 pm, and light refreshments will be provided

The event is open to a variety of staff across all elements of the care pathwayand also to people with diabetes. 

Places on the event MUST be booked in advance, to book a place  please contact Natasha [email protected].

The agenda is not firm as yet but the draft is as follows:

  • Opening from Sophie Holden (GP lead for diabetes)/Stuart Lakin (Head of Medicines Management) re. our current outcomes
  • Regional/national view of diabetes care
  • Wakefield model – Dinesh Nardy or Ryan D’Costa
  • Table work (why care is not improving, what works in Super 6, what doesn’t, where should diabetes care be supported)
  • Next steps
