King’s Fund: ‘Join us on our journey’: developing a new model of care for children and young people with type 1 diabetes

NHS Diabetes

NHS Diabetes commissioned Leeds Metropolitan University to undertake a 3-year research project called ‘Join Us On Our Journey’. The aims of the research were to develop a model of care that will deliver the aspirations of the policy document Making Every Young Person with Diabetes Matter and improve the care provision for children and young people with type 1 diabetes in England. The findings show that there are certain aspects of the care pathway that need to be addressed. In particular, diabetes care, resources, education, psychological support, school/college and transition were found to be the main areas of concern.
