Case Study: The National Children & Young People’s Diabetes Network


What does it take to improve outcomes for people receiving care from the NHS consistently
and sustainably?
It’s a central question for our improvement work at the Health Foundation. Part of the
answer includes generating a deep understanding of patients’ aims for their care, clinicians
improving and innovating based on the experience of treating each patient, and applying the
power of research, data and networks to learn from good practice at home and from around
the world. And, importantly, this work would foster a culture where patients and the public
work collaboratively with health care professionals and providers in mutually beneficial
partnerships to improve care.
If you want to see an example of people working to make this happen, the National Children
and Young People’s Diabetes Network (the Network) is an excellent place to start.
