Healum Study

Middlewood is currently encouraging expressions of interest from our eligible patients with Type 2 Diabetes for this exciting Research into the potentially beneficial outcomes of adding in the use of a care planning and communication App to the routine care we offer to Diabetic patients.

We are working as part of a group of Practice sites who are part of Vernova Healthcare, the Community Interest Company run by all GP Practices in East Cheshire. 13 Practice sites in East Cheshire will be offering participation in this trial to their patients, 4 of these are the Middlewood sites.

If you are reading this because you have been invited by text message, and you want to find out more or place your name on the list of interested participants then please send us an email at: research.middlewood@nhs.net .

Below is a brief summary of the Research being done

Project summary

This project will look at how a personalised experience, delivered through a mobile and web app can improve lifestyle and behavioural outcomes for patients living with Type-2 Diabetes. It will address the opportunity to reduce the costs of delivering care plans of information, structured education, diet and lifestyle advice and local services through digital tools. In addition, we will explore how the mobile app and the platform it is built upon, can provide actionable insights and shared decision making tools that enable practitioners across the whole care pathway to deliver better outcomes and joined up care. The project will consider the user experience (both staff and participant) as this is key to providing insight and outcomes.
