Implementing the PCN DiaST Vision for Diabetes

Date: 5th October 2021

Cost: Free

Location: Virtual Workshops 20:00 - 21:30


The i2i Network is delighted to be building on our on-demand diabetes programmes designed for GP Clinical Pharmacists. With PCNs across England at varying stages of maturity, the Primary Care Diabetes Society’s (PCDS) guide to Best Practice in the Delivery of Diabetes Care in the Primary Care Network outlines the need for PCNs to form Diabetes Support Teams (DiaST) to enable joined-up diabetes care as part of a four-tier model. The PCN DiaST will be a new enhanced tier from within the existing PCN MDT underpinned by tier 1 practice-based diabetes care.

We will be hearing from expert pharmacists across primary and secondary care who are actively leading and implementing services at each tier.
