Description:
The HSE Midland Diabetes Structured Care Programme is a primary care based programme dedicated to improving the quality of care for patients with diabetes. The HSE Midland area encompasses the counties of Longford, Westmeath, Laois and Offaly. The programme was established in 1997/1998 through a partnership between a number of General Practitioners (GP’s) with an interest in diabetes and the Department of Public Health and Planning in the then Midland Health Board. Recently, a Consultant Endocrinologist has been appointed to Midland Regional Hospital Mullingar to provide a hospital based diabetes service to the region. Patients with diabetes enrolled on the programme are managed in primary care with structured specialist support provided to participating practices including diabetes nurse specialists, enhanced access to dietetic, ophthalmology and chiropody/podiatry services and ‘fast track’ referral to the vascular services at Midland Regional Hospital Tullamore. Participating practices also receive education inputs for GP’s and practice nurses and project management support for the development of local clinical guidelines, protocols and quality assurance systems. Structured care for patients with diabetes is now provided in 30 GP practices comprising 67 GP’s and since the commencement of the programme over 3,700 patients have been identified as having diabetes and are registered with participating practices.
