PPP Specialist Series

System-wide Strategies For Better Diabetes Care

PPP’s Diabetes Care Programme 2024 will explore the unmet needs in diabetes care and examine the challenges and opportunities to improve diabetes outcomes, both locally and nationally.  

Diabetes Care Programme 2024

Diabetes is the second highest expense to the NHS and a cornerstone for ICS strategic objectives. Yet, there remains inefficiencies and inequalities in service provision and diagnosis, in addressing these issues, health systems can achieve financial, workforce and patient benefits.   The PPP Diabetes Care Programme 2024 will seek to break down professional silos by convening a diverse stakeholder group to analyse and influence what better integration and collaboration can look like across the diabetes patient pathway. Roundtable delegates will propose strategies for system-wide diabetes-focused transformation across different care settings and services, to optimise clinical pathways and demonstrate current examples of best practice

The programme consists of:

  • Four virtual 90min invitation-only roundtables January-April 2024, consisting of panel debates and keynote speakers. We will deep dive into evidence-approved medicines for type 2 diabetics and how we can go further for reducing inequalities and outcomes. We will explore the challenges and opportunities for addressing the growing number of under 40-year-olds diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and the link to obesity. We will give examples of poor uptake of NICE approved technologies for type 1 and 2 diabetes and how we can overcome barriers to adoption and the role of clinical pathways.
  • Policy and insights reports capturing the recommendations from the programme.
  • An in-person conference for over 180 delegates with panel debates, keynotes speakers and networking.

Professor Partha Kar: Chair

The Chair of the PPP Diabetes Care Programme 2024 is Professor Partha Kar, National Specialty Advisor, Diabetes with NHS England, and co-author of the National Diabetes GIRFT report. A Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust since 2008, he is the pioneer of the Super Six Diabetes Model which is recognised as one of the good examples of integrated care.  In this Diabetes Programme 2024, Professor Kar will explore if priorities in diabetes care should remain the same or change.
