S

pirit Health Group is a

Leicester-based family

of companies. Three

divisions in the group excel

in diabetes products and

education services. First, there's Spirit

Healthcare which supplies products

including blood glucose and ketone

meters and strips, CareSens and TEE2,

as well as the Insupen range of insulin pen

needles. Second, there is Spirit Clinical

Services, which offers the EMPOWER

diabetes education programme. The third

part of Spirit's offering is Spirit Pharmacy,

an online pharmacy that has a particular

specialism in diabetes and offers free

diabetes education and guidance.

Spirit Healthcare was founded in 2009

by Chris Barker, who feels passionately

that healthcare should be easy, accessible

and deliver amazing results. Chris Baker

comments: "Spirit has an extensive

background working in diabetes within

the NHS. We are passionate about

helping people to live better lives and

become healthier and happier. We believe

we can help people, especially those who

live with diabetes, to better manage their

condition by giving them easier access to

the support they need."

Proving that this is indeed the case,

since 2019, Spirit's TEE2 blood glucose

test strips have become the fastest

growing brand across the UK, with patient

feedback highlighting how easy they

are to use, as well as taking advantage

of updated technology and advanced

Bluetooth connectivity to aid monitoring.

Likewise, the Insupen Original pen needles

have been precision engineered to reduce

friction points and pain and come in four

different lengths and gauges to match

patients' needs. With 47% of people

MAKING HEALTH EASY

An update from Chris Baker, founder of Spirit Health Group.

ADVERTORIAL

saying that they would be more likely to

follow their prescribed regime if injections

were less painful , Insupen Original offers

patients and healthcare providers alike

easier healthcare and better outcomes.

Empowering ideas

Similarly, the EMPOWER diabetes

education programme is proven to

deliver excellent results, with over 99% of

attendees saying they would recommend

it to family and friends . EMPOWER has

just been re-accredited with the QISMET

certification, a quality standard specifically

for diabetes education that covers all

aspects of managing and running high

quality education programmes that meet

NICE and all other national requirements.

Traditionally a face-to-face

programme, during the COVID-19

lockdown, Spirit was able to make

EMPOWER available as a fully online

service in just three weeks and started

running its first remote courses in

additional languages in July, helping

educate patients with Type 2 diabetes

who may not have English as their primary

language. Expanding upon EMPOWER's

accessibility, the virtual education course

(also delivered in Gujarati, Hindi and Urdu).

Finally, Spirit Pharmacy offers free

diabetes support, easy online prescription

ordering with free delivery and automatic

order reminders, all designed to make

it easier for patients to manage their

diabetes. Patients who choose Spirit

Pharmacy will benefit from the knowledge

and expertise of qualified pharmacists

with a special interest in diabetes, offering

prescription dispensing and advice

services wihile being online.
