Helping young people with diabetes from slipping through the net

A new service has been introduced by the Trust to help those with type-1 diabetes who have disengaged from the regular care of a specialist team of doctors and nurses. This successful initiative, which has received national attention and is being funded by the East and North Hertfordshire CCG, seeks to ensure that these young people look after their condition better and help avoid serious complications in their health that could arise otherwise – including emergency admissions and later eyesight and kidney problems.
