WHERE THIS HAPPENED: Hillingdon Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
The Hillingdon Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has transformed care for young people with Type 1 diabetes by integrating multidisciplinary (MDT) clinics and psychological therapy groups into local secondary schools – making care more accessible and reducing the need for lengthy periods away from school.
