Teams who have gone above and beyond to improve diabetes care during the COVID-19 pandemic have been recognised at the 12th annual Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes Awards.
The highly respected awards ceremony took place on the evening of Thursday, October 13, at Sanofi’s UK headquarters in Reading.
QiC Diabetes recognises initiatives that improve the quality of life for people living with diabetes, as judged by the NHS, people with diabetes and industry.
This year, the awards celebrated the exceptional work that has been undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jessamy Baird, Country Lead and Head of General Medicines for Sanofi in UK and Ireland, said:“It is truly a real honour to support the QiC awards as they recognise and reward our NHS heroes who continuously go above and beyond to improve the lives of people with diabetes with such passion, commitment and enthusiasm.
“The QiC diabetes programme is not only about celebrating innovation, service improvement and success, but also about sharing best practices across the NHS. We congratulate everyone and thank them all for such a tireless and heroic contribution to high-quality diabetes care.”
