The NHS Alliance has always been in the vanguard of shaping a patient-centred, clinician-led health service. Their agenda-setting annual conference, chaired this year by Nuffield Trust Chief Executive Nigel Edwards and attended by the Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt, built on that strong heritage. This year’s event on the 4th of December was a unique gathering of front line clinicians in primary care, wider providers and commissioners who gathered to discuss and promote best practice.
In 2014 Nipro Diagnostics UK were approached by the NHS Alliance in recognition of their success in rationalising blood glucose monitoring in primary care whilst still ensuring patients received accurate, easy to use meters for measuring their blood glucose and managing their condition. The NHS Alliance work with ITN every year to commission and produce a number of short films that demonstrate and promote best practice in primary care, and the film that ITN have made with Nipro features the successful partnership approach that has helped deliver significant savings and benefits across the West Berkshire group of CCGs.
The film is told from the perspective of Healthcare Professionals, Medicines Management and Nipro employees and demonstrates how, with accurate, high quality products and a partnership approach to working with CCGs, significant savings can be realised and reinvested in diabetes care at a local level.
