Diabetes team based at Stamford Hospital and Peterborough City Hospital are recognised during Insulin Safety Week for awareness work
Diabetes teams, based at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, Peterborough City Hospital and Stamford Hospital, are celebrating a triumphant year after winning a national award for raising awareness of a complication of the condition.
North West Anglia NHS Trust was presented with the excellence award for its management of a “significant campaign” during Insulin Safety Week, which is staged to recognise initiatives that improve the quality of life for people living with diabetes.
Diabetes teams at the three sites, which are all part of North West Anglia NHS Trust, carried out a range of activities and introduced new insulin prescription charts, distributed a ‘Diabetes and Insulin’ pocket guide to more than 800 staff and manned an insulin safety station, to scoop the prestigious national award at the Quality in Care Diabetes Awards.
