NHS Park


Welcome to the NHS Park

The NHS Diabetes Programme held the interactive NHS Park - a unique opportunity to discover how they are making the NHS Long Term Plan commitments a reality with their partners from across the health system. The NHS Park shared best practice and key updates from NHS England and other NHS organisations in an informal, interactive setting.
