DESMOND: Providing award-winning training

Achieve new CCG framework requirements with DESMOND

A new CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) has replaced both the existing CCG assurance framework and CCG performance dashboard. 


This new framework provides a greater focus on assisting improvement alongside our statutory assessment function.


Commissioning DESMOND means you are achieving your CCG IAF along with Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP) requirements.


DESMOND is a NICE Quality Assured structured education programme for people with Type 2 Diabetes.


As a structured education programme it can help you as a CCG to help achieve your improvement and assessment framework targets.


With the advent of the Diabetes STPs, the DESMOND programme helps deliver the successes required by 2020 through supporting people to manage their care effectively.


DESMOND as a programme can be delivered over one six-hour session or 2 half day sessions and when it comes to recording this on GP practice systems in readiness for the National Diabetes Audit the following codes can be applied:


  • DESMOND is delivered as a group face to face session but is at the forefront of innovation in the NHS by having its own dedicated eLearning platform for patients who can access this on an on-going basis.
  • By empowering patients to be managers of their own care it can lead to improvements in their biomedical markers and more importantly quality of life. The Award winning DESMOND programme can help you as a CCG to achieve this.
  • For more information please contact the DESMOND Director, Bernie Stribling to understand more fully what this means for you to achieve your CCGIAF along with STP requirements.
