Under 18 DESMOND progamme 

Consideration is being given to developing a Desmond programme for young adults who have Type 2 diabetes.

Historically, DESMOND has always been about providing structured education to adults, but the Leicester Diabetes Centre has been gathering interest from sites who think a dedicated programme is needed for those under the age of 18.

We recognise that Type 2 diabetes is a growing problem among young people and we are seeking expressions of interest from Trusts or sites that have an interest in having a programme specifically designed to meet this need. Please email desmondnationalprogramme@uhl-tr.nhs.uk  to register your interest.
