Group consultations driving improved outcomes in Berkshire West

Up to 2. New consultation types
January 08. 2020
Robert Varnam

This new video from Berkshire West ICS shows how they're using group consultations for people with diabetes. As part of their focus on population health management, the ICS and local GPs asked patients with poorly controlled Type 2 Diabetes what would help them to take greater control of their health. The result was a group consultation approach. 

The benefits so far described are:

  • more of a 2-way dialogue with professionals
  • more time for patients to understand their condition and the ways to manage it successfully
  • a stronger focus on the ability of people to look after their own health, not just rely on medication
  • rapid changes in patients' lifestyle
