Dr Kate Fayers
West Hampshire Community Diabetes Service
Patient empowerment has been at the heart of Kate’s strategy for developing an intermediate community service which has relocated type 1 and type 2 diabetes care into the community. Kate was appointed a Diabetes UK Clinical Champion in 2018. Over the last 18 months she has collaborated with West Hants CCG and Primary Care Networks to lead the delivery of the West Hampshire WISDOM project. The project has already achieved improvements in three treatment targets across 75% of participating surgeries.
In 2018 the West Hampshire team was shortlisted by the HSJ Improving Value in Diabetes awards for work centred on parity of esteem and equitable access to diabetes care.
