It is a good example of a website intended to provide a resource both for healthcare professionals working in the area who need access to local contacts and pathway information, and also for individuals with diabetes who want to be aware of the services available locally and how best to use them.
This website includes a ‘routemap’ and associated materials and resources to support services to implement self management support.
