|Anna Morton & me.|
I am proud to say, I won the QiC People's Award in November 2011.
Could it be you this year? Do you know someone who deserves to be nominated for any of the awards?
If so read the information below on how to enter.
Launch of QiC Diabetes 2012
This spring sees the launch of Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes 2012 – the second year of a new programme from publishing company PMGroup to recognise and share good healthcare practice in diabetes in the UK.
Supported by Diabetes UK, NHS Diabetes and Sanofi, QiC Diabetes 2012 comprises both an awards event and subsequent opportunities for finalists to explain why their efforts were successful to a wider healthcare audience.
QiC Diabetes 2012 consists of 15 award categories covering all essential aspects of diabetes care, including ‘Best initiative supporting self-care’, ‘Best improvement programme for children and young people’ and ‘Best in-patient care initiative’.
Entries are invited from groups working in the NHS, industry and for patient organisations, with joint working and collaboration key to the QiC Programmes.
An awards ceremony celebrating the winners and finalists in each category will be held at Sanofi’s Guildford headquarters in October 2012.
Winners will then be able to share their work at subsequent conferences and forums, including the chance of presenting a poster or giving a talk at Diabetes UK’s Annual Professional Conference next March.
Anna Morton, Director, NHS Diabetes said, “NHS Diabetes is proud to once again be supporting the QiC Diabetes Awards Programme in 2012. Despite all the good work being done, we are still seeing unacceptable variation in the care people with diabetes receive and we still have a lot to do.
“I hope that you will join us in supporting the QiC awards for another year by entering and sharing your examples of good practice and helping us to raise the profile of diabetes care in the NHS.”
