Safe and effective diabetes care: The future

With the development of GP commissioning, and more diabetes services being delivered in primary care, this half-day conference organised by the Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust aimed to share experiences and challenges of Local Enhanced Services (LES) for diabetes care in Birmingham GP practices and to demonstrate how community diabetes providers can support safe, high quality diabetes management in primary care.The event was divided into two parts: the first part consisted of four presentations – a keynote speech which set the scene for diabetes and primary care, followed by two presentations about existing models of LES for diabetes care, and a presentation about a proposed foundation LES model. The second part of the event consisted of four workshops, and delegates chose to attend the two which most interested them.
