''Slough CCG is committed towards improving diabetes care delivery in its member practices by constantly striving to engage both health care professionals and patients in all aspects of care that includes early diagnosis and optimising treatment for tighter glucose control to prevent long-term complications like blindness, heart disease and leg amputation with diabetes.

In an attempt to achieve the above, We are implementing 'Enhancing management of Diabetes' program to help upskill GPs and Practice nurses to optimise treatment of uncontrolled diabetes. There are also independently run projects of 'Diet and lifestyle intervention' which hopes to engage patients to increase awareness of diet and exercise in order to promote healthier lifestyle.''
