Overview

DESMOND is offered to empower patients to become more informed about their condition and as a resource to assist management of the changes which diabetes will bring to their lives. It is also offered as an opportunity for people with newly diagnosed diabetes to meet and share experiences.

Courses are run 4 times a month across a variety of local venues and are delivered by four accredited DESMOND trainers. GP practices refer directly to designated DESMOND administrator and a course date is usually offered within three months of receipt of referral. The programme is evaluated via the designated DESMOND criteria plus our own evaluation to allow the DESMOND experience to be audited.
