"The Diabetes Clinical Advisory Group prioritised patient education as a key priority. The group recognised that work needed to be done to develop the quality and capacity of “Structured” education as outlined by NICE guidance. However, the group also wanted to provide other options for those patients who wanted more education after attending structured education courses or who had declined to attend an education course but were interested in undertaking some learning. We commissioned Rosie Walker at Successful Diabetes to pull together a menu of currently available alternative education and self help options available to patients both for free or either funded by the patient themselves.
Rosie immediately understood what we were trying to achieve due to her obvious extensive experience. She was able to quickly translate our requirements and offer ideas for improvements. We had a relatively tight deadline for the work which was delivered ahead of time.
It is a huge advantage, as a commissioner of a diabetes-specific piece of work, to have a company that is solely focused on diabetes and the expertise shone through.
I would strongly recommend Rosie Walker and Successful Diabetes"
