Diabetes Book & Learn service now available

Diabetes Book & Learn service now available
22 October 2018

A new integrated diabetes education booking service called Diabetes Book & Learn, has been launched for health professionals to refer people with Type 2 diabetes from across south London. Diabetes Book & Learn can be accessed via the website

From 1 October 2018, for the first-time, health care professionals will be able to refer people with Type 2 diabetes to Diabetes Book & Learn where they will be offered the choice of many diabetes education courses available across south London.  This will give people a much wider range of course locations and timings, potentially significantly increasing attendance rates and helping people with Type 2 diabetes to take more control over their own health and care.

This initiative has been made possible by the joint collaboration between the Health Innovation Network and ten south London Clinical Commissioning Groups, including Kingston, Richmond, Sutton, Croydon, Lambeth and Southwark CCGs.  

In mid November, the service will also open up to members of the public with Type 2 diabetes to self-refer themselves and book their course online or with the help of the call centre team rather than needing a health professional to refer them for their education. The service will also be used for health professionals to refer people with Type 1 diabetes from the beginning of November.

Tara Donnelly, Chief Executive of Health Innovation Network, said: “we are really pleased to have supported the development of this innovative service on behalf of the south London CCGs.   It will make education much easier to access for people with diabetes and should then enable significant improvements in the self-management of diabetes across London.”
