Bradford is the most socially deprived area of West Yorkshire (Noble et al, 2007) and has a diabetes prevalence of 5.3% (Bradford Observatory -- Public
Health, 2009). To meet the needs of this demographic, Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS FOundation Trust has developed innovative diabetes dietetic services, including supermarket tourcs, a diabetes weight management programme and one-to-one appointments allowing self-referral for some services. Many of these facilities involve multidisciplinary teams and good communication between specialist and community diabetes care. This article describes the dietetic services in Bradford as an example of integrated care.
