The Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Network for Diabetes

3.2 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and this figure is increasing by around 5% per year as around 700 people a day are diagnosed with diabetes. For more information about Diabetes, please visit the Diabetes UK website.


The National Priorities for Diabetes:

There are three main national priorities for Diabetes:

  1. Reduce the projected growth in incidence in diabetes
  2. Support more people to manage their own care effectively
  3. Improve treatment and care received


Our Role and Objectives:

The Diabetes Clinical Network is part of NHS England and works to support the national priority programmes for diabetes through supporting commissioners and service providers with quality improvement and diabetes prevention workstreams. We aim to enable patients, professionals and organisations to work together to help drive service improvements using an integrated, whole system approach.


The aims of the Clinical Network are:

  • To reduce variation in health and wellbeing services;
  • To encourage innovation in how services are provided now and in the future, and
  • To provide clinical advice and leadership to support decision making and strategic planning.
