DESMOND: NHS Borders Video Still

NHS Borders - DESMOND video shown at NHS Scotland Conference 2014

DESMOND fits into this around changing from seeing patients 1:1-due to ever increasing prevalence and aiming to get clients self-managing-therefore moving towards structured education and a package that works very effectively.


In May 2014 Amy Simmonds DESMOND Educator was asked by the NHS Borders board if she could put together a short video about the DESMOND programme/service locally-as an example of good practice in the NHS. This was then to be shown in a Workshop at the 2014 NHS Scotland Event in Glasgow in June!

The theme of the event was ‘spreading and sustaining quality’ and focused on aspects of the 2020 Vision document for NHS Scotland entitled: ‘Everyone Matters’.

Three videos from different areas in Scotland were shown-including ours-in 2 different sessions over the 2 day conference. The session aim was to showcase practical examples of the work already underway to inspire and motivate everyone involved in delivering workforce changes and the 2020 Workforce vision.
