Paediatric Diabetes Team, Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust
The team's innovative and imaginative approach to care has hugely improved national diabetes clinical outcomes for children and young people in Southport, Formby and West Lancashire. Their innovative approaches have included embracing diabetes technology and social media for patient engagement; routinely using telemedicine clinics since 2010; holding family diabetes fun day events and evening structured family education sessions; establishing a children’s Diabetes Geeks Club while embracing well-being and solution-focused approaches into routine diabetes care.
