• Testing a programme of 800

calorie a day diets for people with obesity

and Type 2 diabetes. This expands on

the Diabetes UK DiRECT trial, which at

the end of its first year showed that these

diets - with the right support - can help

some people to achieve remission.

• Doubling the size of the NHS

Diabetes Prevention Programme over

the next five years, including digital

approaches, reaching more people at

high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

The Long Term Plan also confirmed

that existing national work to transform

treatment and care for people with

diabetes will continue, rolling out tried and

tested approaches in key areas of care.

Specifically:

• Expanding provision of

structured education and digital selfmanagement support tools for people

who are newly diagnosed with Type 1 or

2 diabetes.

• Ensuring that in future all hospitals

provide access to multidisciplinary

foot care teams and diabetes inpatient

specialist nursing teams.

• Continuing to invest in supporting

delivery in primary care, enabling people

to achieve their recommended treatment

targets and drive down variation across

England.

"We're pleased to report

that on diabetes, the

plan seems to deliver.

- Robin Hewings

Among other new year news, it was announced that Professor Jonathan Valabhji, a

consultant diabetologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and National Clinical

Director for Diabetes and Obesity at NHS England, had been awarded an OBE in the

New Year Honours List 2019 for services to diabetes and obesity care.

In 2002 Valabhji established the acclaimed Multidisciplinary Diabetic Foot Service at

the Trust which provides daily clinics focusing on foot infections including osteomyelitis

and Charcot foot disease. The clinical outcomes for this service have been shown to be

amongst the best globally.

As National Clinical Director, Professor Valabhji is Clinical Lead for the NHS England

Diabetes Programme, including both the Diabetes Treatment and Care Programme and

the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme. This collaboration between

NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK this year saw England become

the first country in the world to achieve full national coverage with an evidence-based

Type 2 diabetes prevention programme.

Professor Valabhji said: "I am delighted to receive this award. It is an honour to work

in the NHS, with fantastic teams both at the hospital and at NHS England. Together, we

have made some ground-breaking improvements in diabetes and obesity care."
