Insulin Safety Week

14th-18th May is insulin safety week across the UK http://insulinsafetyweek.com/.

NHS GGC are using this opportunity to highlight to healthcare staff the risk of harm associated with insulin use and to promote actions which will improve patient safety. The work is being led by Dr Steve Cleland (Diabetes Managed Clinical Network) and Amanda McCafferty (Diabetes Specialist Nurse) with input from multidisciplinary staff across NHS GGC.

Top 10 safety tips have been developed in conjunction with ADTC: Safer Use of Medicines Sub-group and have been promoted during Insulin Safety Week along with the referral criteria to the Inpatient diabetes team.
