In our second series of College Strategy 2021-24 podcasts we look at the Strategy in action. Hearing stories from clinicians, children and young people and staff about the impact our work has made on the community and within paediatric clinical practice.

The National Diabetes Quality Programme (NDQP) was established in collaboration with the National Children and Young People’s Diabetes Network in April 2018. In the last five years, the programme has supported quality improvement programmes attended by thousands of clinicians, helped to improve services at several NHS trusts across the UK and performed multiple peer reviews to identify good clinical practice. The impact of this programme has been seen in the number of Trusts whose standards of care have risen as a direct result of the NDQP as well as the number of clinicians whose practice has improved to better deliver for children affected by Diabetes.

Now that the programme has ended, Clinical Lead Dr Fiona Campbell, OBE Chair of the National Children and Young People’s Diabetes Network in England and Wales and Consultant Paediatric Diabetes Leeds Children’s Hospital and members of the project team discussed the achievements and the lasting legacy of the programme on integrated care services (ICS) and Trusts across the UK.
