Download the new GIRFT report for diabetes

17 Nov 2020



The Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) national report for diabetes is now available for download and offers a series of recommendations to improve patient safety, type 1 services, and diabetic footcare. It is the first nationwide report on diabetes care in England's hospitals and is based on visits to more than 100 trusts.

Recommendations include establishing specialist multi-disciplinary diabetes inpatient teams (MDiTs) in every trust to ensure patients with diabetes are monitored throughout their stay in hospital, and training for every healthcare professional who dispenses, prescribes or administers insulin.
