Abstract

This guidance brings together the key information for commissioning high quality structured education for people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. It has been developed by Diabetes UK, in partnership with the South East Strategic Clinical Network, in response to requests for information about how to commission an effective diabetes education service. It also responds to the results of a Freedom of Information (FOI) request by Diabetes UK that found significant gaps in both the commissioning of courses and data collection across many Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

While this guidance is aimed at commissioners of education in England, it is hoped that it will be useful to healthcare decision makers across the UK.
