The Leicester Model of Enhanced Diabetes Care

Nearly 5 million people in the UK have Diabetes.

In a bid to reduce high costs and offer better care, a new model of Diabetes care has been trialled and evaluated. It is now implemented as routine care across Leicester/shire.

The Leicester model of enhanced diabetes care takes a collaborative, holistic approach to Diabetes and the management of multiple long-term conditions. It focuses on:

  • Prevention
  • Inequalities in care
  • Increasing care standards, whilst reducing complications from care
  • Community-based care
  • Reduction in unplanned hospital admissions
  • Better in-patient care experiences
