Delivering specialist diabetes care in a GP practice in Stockport

GP-led specialist diabetic care.

 

Dr Seabrook and Partners is a GP practice in Stockport. About 530 of its patients have diabetes. Patient stories showed a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to diabetes care could lead to poor communication, unmet needs and poor compliance with treatments. Furthermore care needed to be efficient and cost effective.

The team wanted to find innovative ways of working and providing high quality specialist care closer to home. Specifically, they wanted to improve the quality of care for hard to reach diabetes patients who had three or more uncontrolled risk factors outside recommended targets.
