A Cheshire NHS team that supports people with diabetes has won an award following a round of public nominations.

Central Cheshire Integrated Care Partnership’s (CCICP) Diabetes Specialist Team is one of twelve winners of Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s Celebration of Achievement awards.

The annual awards, which took place at Crewe Hall, aim to recognise teams and individuals that demonstrate excellence in care.

The service won the ‘Public Choice Award’, which gives members of the public the chance to nominate local NHS employees who have gone the extra mile to ensure the best possible care for patients.

A judging panel made up of NHS staff selected the diabetes team as the category’s winner after they received a number of nominations from patients and their families. 

The team was recognised for its excellent knowledge on diabetes and the support they give their patients who live with the condition each and every day.

They also provide education to their patients to manage and control their diabetes and offer invaluable advice to those who need it. 

Irene Doldon, Clinical Specialist Practitioner for Diabetes, said: “We see people, mainly with insulin treated diabetes, for an episode of care to support them to learn a variety of strategies to self-manage their diabetes.  

“Self-managing diabetes takes time and effort and for our patients to acknowledge our service makes our job worthwhile. We are delighted to have won this award.”  

Tony Mayer, Associate Director of CCICP said: “The Patient Choice Award recognises the fact that providing healthcare isn't just about delivering effective treatments but is also about how staff work with patients to make sure that they feel empowered to help themselves to manage their condition"

The service covers the community across Crewe, Nantwich, Winsford, Northwich and SMASH.
