BEST IS RECOGNISED

Excellence in Type 2 diabetes structured

education has been recognised in the

inaugural DESMOND awards. Almost 30

submissions were made to the awards

programme, which aimed to reward

excellence and share learning across

the DESMOND community (diabetes

education and self-monitoring for ongoing

and newly diagnosed).

Bernie Stribling, director of the

DESMOND Programme, said the five

winning entries showed 'star quality' and

the awards in general demonstrated a

'wealth of good practice'. The winners

were revealed on World Diabetes Day,

which this year had a healthy living

message relating to the prevention of Type

2 diabetes and the effective management

of diabetes to avoid complications.

Commenting on the event, Stribling

says, "The standard was high with a

degree of excellence demonstrated by

many of the entries. It was clear from the

all of the entries that DESMOND is making

L-R: DESMOND's Bernie

Stribling and Alison Northern

busy judging in the inaugural Celebrating DESMOND

awards

a difference to the lives of people with,

and at risk of, Type 2 diabetes, with teams

going above and beyond in delivering the

DESMOND Programme. Congratulations

to the winners and thank you to everyone

who entered."

TYPE ONESIES

On 14th November many people with

diabetes did something for World Diabetes

Day. Among the many organisations doing

something big for the day was JDRF

UK, which organised a 'come to school

in a onesie for Type Onesies' in schools

across the country. I'm delighted that

my nephew, right, made it to school in a

'onesie' along with many other children at

his school.

#TypeOnesie is JDRF's campaign

for World Diabetes Day aiming to raise

awareness of Type 1 diabetes and money

for JDRF.

SENSOR

SUPPLY

UPDATE

Abbott has been struggling to keep

up with the demand for its new

FreeStyle Libre sensors following

the launch of the technology in

October. People already using

FreeStyle Libre will be unaffected

and will be able to re-order sensors

for continued use. Abbott anticipates

being able to supply product to new

customers in the next few months,

as manufacturing enhancements

are implemented.
