DPC vows to support all NHS staff as they resume non-COVID health services

“As NHS staff are urged to return to ‘near-normal levels of non-COVID health services’ we are doing all we can to support diabetes teams,” says DPC Founder Maggie Meer.

She is taking part in the next session of the DPC Summer Forum Part 2 - Rebooting diabetes care series, entitled ‘Nothing about us without us, how to keep the patients at the heart of everything we do’ on Wednesday, September 9 at 7pm.

The webinar, which has been made possible due to a hands-off grant by AstraZeneca, is being chaired by Dr David Strain, Clinical Senior Lecturer, and Professor Partha Kar, National Specialty Advisor, Diabetes with NHS England, Christine Douglas, an expert in patient liaison and Dr Jim Moore, GP And GPSI, will join Maggie.

“Sir Simon Stevens has recently written to all NHS staff asking them to start preparing for winter and to reinstate most health services once again,” Maggie explains.

“There is much focus at the moment on referral and cancer services, and with everything that has been happening recently, it’s very easy to forget about people with diabetes. These people had to continue managing their condition as best as they could with only remote consultations to help them through the entire period of lockdown.

“We know that people with diabetes are more likely to develop diabetes complications than die of COVID-19 so our webinars have been all about bringing key opinion leaders together to discuss the best way to avoid clinical inertia.

“At DPC we spend a lot of time talking directly with people who have diabetes and we know they want to be included in conversations about care, approaches and treatments. That’s why we were thrilled AstraZeneca agreed to come on board as – just like DPC – the company believes everyone should have access to healthcare – regardless of language, literacy or socio-economic status.”
