This JBDS – IP project is being led by our colleagues Umesh Dashora, Debbie Stanisstreet, and Erwin Castro. 

The outcome of this initiative will be published on the ABCD, Diabetes UK and DISNUK Group websites to share excellent practice. This competition follows the very successful 2014 and 2015 competitions to find the best UK insulin chart and best hypoglycaemia avoidance initiative. Competitive applications are likely to be those that show hard evidence of benefit, that are translatable to other Trusts, are costed, are relatively simple and sustainable, and which have been commissioned or supported by an Acute Trust. This competition is open to all health care professionals.
