three Acute NHS Foundation Trusts, with

primary care input from seven local GP

Federations and 78 GP practices across

the county.

Award: Diabetes

Team of the Year

Winner: West Green Surgery for

Personalised SMS Care Plan for Diabetes

The surgery set out to improve the

identification and management of

diabetes and hypertension. Special

software was developed to recall patients

more efficiently and educate them about

their results. Personalised messages

about medication, sharing links to health

information or directing them to make an

appointment, have empowered patients

to be more actively engaged in their health

management.

"The fact that the software is

shareable, scalable and flexible makes this

an excellent candidate for national uptake,

with evidence of its cost-effectiveness

beyond question," said the judges.

The Diabetes Technology Network

UK, by the Association of British Clinical

Diabetologists was highly commended

for its work to support UK healthcare

professionals involved in delivering

technologies to people with diabetes.

The Network has over 500 members and

1,384 Twitter followers. It has delivered

11 educational meetings, three national

clinical best practice guides, three

online webinars and 13 online modules

for people living with diabetes and their

healthcare professionals. DTN-UK has

campaigned for better access to flash

glucose monitoring, developed the

FreeStyle Libre national audit and the

2018 national Type 1 diabetes service

level audit, as well as helping to create the

NHSE/Diabetes UK technology pathway.

Winner: Implementation of a National

Guideline with Local Changes: Does an

Abbreviated Adult Diabetic Ketoacidosis

(DKA) Protocol Improve Local Uptake and

Overall Clinical Care? By Sandwell & West

Birmingham NHS Trust

In 2015 junior doctors and nursing staff

worked to abbreviate the Joint British

Diabetes Society guidelines on DKA.

The guidelines went from 10 to two

pages, and an audit in 2015-16 showed

significant improvements in adherence,

management outcomes, user satisfaction

and length of stay, and the revised

protocol became standard in the Trust.

"The step-by-step protocol allows

underlying causes, as well as treatment

of DKA, to be identified, which will help

practitioners improve care. The project

generated compelling positive feedback

from users, suggesting that its clinical

impact could be significant. Already in

routine practice, the sustainability of the

programme is clear," commented the

judges.

NHS Lothian was highly commended

for introducing Flash glucose monitoring

at scale with educational support. When
