Commissioning Recommendations for Psychological Support: Focussing on London’s Diabetes Care Pathway


The London Mental Health Strategic Clinical Network has developed a guide, 'Commissioning Recommendations for Psychological Support – Focussing on London’s Diabetes Care Pathway' (see below), to provide recommendations for commissioners in providing emotional and psychological support on the diabetes care pathway. The report has been shaped from information gathered from discussions with professionals and people with lived experience and surveys identifying local provision in London.

The 10 recommendations are supported from more than 20 national and regional case studies, which are included. The case studies cover a variety of models providing evidence that care and outcomes for people with diabetes who need psychological or emotional support can improve. The recommendations are designed to help commissioners and others to develop improvements to psychological and emotional care provision in London and should also be a useful resource for providers and practitioners.

It is time to act and do what the evidence shows. This guide will hopefully support and provoke us all to do just that.
