At the London Diabetes Clinic, we’ve pioneered a genuinely different approach to the management and care of diabetes.

Time after time, we meet patients telling stories of feeling anonymous, unheard, and even excluded from the management of their condition.

Which strongly confirms what we already know: that traditional models of care – where instruction is passed down from “on high” to patients, who are left alone and unsupported to follow – no longer work (if they ever did).

In response, we have developed the London Diabetes Care Plan, which provides a completely different standard of personalised, continuous and all-encompassing care.

Making you a member of our expert team

Above all, as we mentioned above, it’s different in that we want to
recruit you into our expert team as a central player in the decision-making.

Self-management shouldn’t mean self-supporting, and we know that confident self-management progresses from being part of a dynamic and collaborative group.

The main guiding principles are:

  • To establish the most effective insulin treatment for the person with type 1 diabetes and to fine-tune that treatment for optimal well-being and freedom.
  • To agree a treatment plan with the patient that is achievable, appropriate to the patient’s needs, and that is personal to the patient and not defined by government or national guidelines.
  • To ensure that the patient has access to education appropriate to their needs, with respect to content and method of delivery.
  • To empower the patient to understand and self-manage their condition more effectively and to be actively participating in improving their health.
  • To be innovative in diabetes care, offering the very latest and best available safe therapies.
  • To provide support in a patient’s approach to diabetes and be their champion in those instances where they have been unsupported.
