NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group has been working with colleagues and partners to identify ways to make it easier for people living with Type 1 diabetes to attend all the routine healthcare appointments which could benefit them.
In order to do this, it has been first important to understand what may prevent people from currently attending these appointments. We have worked to do this through our project Type 1 Diabetes Patients – Exploring barriers to attending appointments with the Local Diabetes Service. This has involved working with healthcare professionals and arranging interviews and feedback with patients, both in a face-to-face setting and online.

This project was undertaken as part of the Diabetes Transformation Programme, in collaboration with GP Practices across Buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Buckinghamshire CCG, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and NHS England.
