CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (7)

AA

new report states

diabetes teams have

learnt how to adapt to

the 'new normal' amid

Covid-19 but must reengage with people who may feel lost in

the system.

Since the UK lockdown began in

March, outpatient clinics were cancelled

across the NHS and replaced with remote

consultations. Trend Diabetes examined

how things within the health service have

changed and how the future may look

once it is over.

Consultant Nurse Lesley Mills from

the Warrington and Halton Hospitals

NHS Foundation Trust formed a working

group of healthcare professionals working

in different settings to review practice,

challenges and innovation designed to

meet the needs of people with diabetes

who normally attended face-to-face clinic

appointments.

She said: "We think future diabetes

consultations will combine a mix of

face-to-face appointments with online

meetings, bringing together aspects of the

traditional service with new technologies."

The findings of the working group,

with input from Diabetes UK and ABCD,

were collated in a report, was authored by

Trend Diabetes Co-founder and Co-chair

June James, who said: "The document

did flag up concerns about mental health

services and how they may not work as

well being carried out remotely.

"But the general consensus is that

should the second COVID-19 wave

become extreme, it's imperative diabetes

services continue to function rather than

being completely shut down again. The

ability to operate a virtual service will

definitely build in a degree of flexibility

to allow this to happen and this should

be considered in the design of any new

service from now on."

"Overall, we think diabetes teams

have learnt how to adapt to new ways

of working and it is important that these

skills are not lost. In many ways they

have helped healthcare professionals

to streamline services and to ensure

that those people who really need to be

seen face to face can be seen in a timely

manner.

"However, some individuals with

diabetes may feel they have been lost in

the system during the pandemic, so it is

important the healthcare professions reengage with them when introducing

new

ways of working.
