There is increasing pressure on the NHS to deliver improved services with limited resources. Effective commissioning and monitoring of services are crucial to driving up quality, improving patient outcomes and delivering the twenty billion pound QIPP.
A local diabetes network will help commissioners to achieve this by providing an effective and necessary vehicle to fill the potential gap in supporting the commissioning of diabetes care and services in the new NHS structures, including support for and coordination between clinical commissioning groups.
