Diabetes Care for You is a Citywide community diabetes service led by Dr Paul Grant.
We visited the weekly team meeting at Moulescoomb Health Clinic to meet the team of consultants, diabetes specialist nurses, dietitians, podiatrists and psychologists, all of whom specialise in care for people with diabetes.
There are over 4,500 adults living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in the Brighton & Hove and High Weald, Lewes and Havens area. Managing their condition can be challenging for patients and have a serious impact on their quality of life, independence and overall health. The continuous glucose monitoring system is used for diagnostic purposes and when worn for a few days can provide invaluable information about an individuals’ glucose control. This detailed information allows clinicians to arrange a personalised care plan for specific patients.
Dr Grant already has several patients lined up to use the device which is recommended by NICE guidance to assist with difficult to manage patients. The Friends are delighted to fund such equipment for community services.

To express my thanks and gratitude to Friends of Brighton & Hove Hospitals for funding 3 expiratory and inspiratory respiratory muscle trainers. This is an innovative approach in voice and swallow therapy which helps patients in rehab working to improve their swallow function, cough and secretion management and also patients with long standing swallowing difficulties.Duncan Brown, Advanced Speech and Language Therapist, ENT Department, Royal Sussex County Hospital
