A joint venture between Belfast Trust, QUB, South Eastern Trust and Manchester University Hospitals Foundation Trust has won a prestigious award.

‘GDM: Things you need to know but maybe don’t!’ is an educational resource for women with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus.
 
It was placed tops in the Empowering People with Diabetes Adult Category at the Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes 2016 National Awards.
 
Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes recognises, rewards and shares innovative practice demonstrating quality in diabetes management, education and services for people with diabetes and/or their families.
 
Professor David McCance from Belfast Trust and a member of the Project Steering Committee said, “It is most pleasing to have won this award and to see our project, designed to improve the quality of care of women with Gestational Diabetes, receiving national recognition."
 
Gaining QiC recognition means an initiative has been highlighted by the NHS, patients and industry as improving the quality of life for people living with diabetes.
