The Cancer Centre at Guy's

Over three years, the Diabetes Modernisation Initiative has worked with a number of clinical and community partners to redesign the delivery of diabetic care in Lambeth and Southwark. The new approach focused on better detection, better control of blood sugar levels, care in the right place, and productive partnerships. 

A learnings report from the Diabetes Modernisation Initiative has recently been published.
