NHS heroes recognised at Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes Awards

NHS heroes recognised at Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes Awards
Teams praised for their exceptional work to improve diabetes care during the pandemic at the Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes Awards

High profile awards have been presented to teams that have provided exceptional diabetes care throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 12th annual Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes Awards were held last month at Sanofi’s UK headquarters in Reading to recognise initiatives that improve the quality of life for people living with diabetes.

This year’s awards focussed on the incredible work that has been undertaken throughout the pandemic, which in many cases has proved to be a catalyst for significant change in treatment and options available for people with diabetes and, or their families and carers.

Jessamy Baird, Country Lead and Head of General Medicines for Sanofi in UK and Ireland, said: “It is truly a real honour to support the QiC awards as they recognise and reward our NHS heroes who continuously go above and beyond to improve the lives of people with diabetes with such passion, commitment and enthusiasm.

“The QiC diabetes programme is not only about celebrating innovation, service improvement and success, but also about sharing best practices across the NHS. We congratulate everyone and thank them all for such a tireless and heroic contribution to high-quality diabetes care.”
