The Co-creating Health project, funded by the Health Foundation, included two sites in type 2 diabetes, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) and Whittington Health (WH). The evaluation showed that the programme was associated with statistically significant and clinically important improvements in HbA1c and most of those who went through the programme supported it. However, challenges remain in engaging local populations of both NHS staff and patients.
