NHS life-changing innovations – glucose monitoring, hybrid closed-loop system and treating monogenic diabetes

10 Nov 2021
Technology & Innovation Zone

The NHS Long Term Plan made a commitment to ensure that “in line with clinical guidelines, patients with type 1 diabetes benefit from life changing flash glucose monitors, ending the variation patients in some parts of the country are facing”. It also commits to offering “all pregnant women with type 1 diabetes a continuous glucose monitor, helping to improve neonatal outcomes”.

The NHS Diabetes Programme is not only outperforming those goals, but going above and beyond them by now piloting hybrid closed-loop technology – or ‘artificial pancreas’ technology – to revolutionise the lives of up to 1000 people living with type 1 diabetes.

Expanding it’s life-changing innovations portfolio, the NHS Diabetes Programme has also launched a new project to increase the identification of monogenic diabetes, a type of diabetes that can be difficult to identify and requires genetic testing, through the training and identification of monogenic diabetes leads within every Trust. Increased diagnosis rates will improve the treatment and care of people living with monogenic diabetes many of whom will be able to transfer from long term insulin injections to tablet treatment.

Join a team of experts from across the NHS to learn more about how developments in technology and clinical advances are improving outcomes for people living with diabetes, and how they can benefit you and your patients.
