The MK IDS is a service commissioned by NHS Milton Keynes. It is a Diabetes Specialist Support Service designed to support the Aims of the Health & Social Care Act 2012 (1) in promoting patient choice, improving outcomes and moving care in to the community.
In 2017 NHS Milton Keynes commissioned a new service to work as a 'proof of concept' service. This was to develop an integrated, proactive, modern and comprehensive service for adults living with diabetes.
The service is provided by MK IDS and aims to support all adults with diabetes who are registered with a GP in Milton Keynes CCG. The 'proof of concept' will run for at least 18 months, whilst we redesign and improve the diabetes pathway in Milton Keynes.
