East Lancashire NHS Trust wishes to offer an excellent service to all children and young people with diabetes and their parents and carers.  We will do this by delivering high quality care that delivers excellent clinical outcomes that are provided by a multi-disciplinary team that empowers the patient and their parents and carers.

  • The service must support the needs of children, young adults and their parents
  • The service must take into account individual needs
  • Cultural and language needs must be addressed
  • The services must be multidisciplinary and involve both paediatric and young person’s diabetes teams and any other parties involved in the care of the child and adolescent
  • The service must be age and developmental stage appropriate
  • The service must undergo continued evaluation.
