Great Oaks from Little Acorns Grow: Solution-Focused Approaches Enable Flourishing Lives after Tough Beginnings : Southport & Ormskirk Hospitals Trust

The Ormskirk Paediatric Diabetes Team has spent years developing and training highly-successful Solution-Focused (SF) practice, a person-centred approach delivering ‘what matters to you’ and tapping patients’ and families’ expertise, complimented by a 'Geeks' Club' for autistic young people and other bespoke initiatives . The Team has enhanced even more lives locally, regionally and internationally by creating the 2019 “Ormskirk Model”, endorsed by NHSE, presenting it internationally and publishing it in 22 languages and latterly embedding the 'active ingredients' of SF into the Attend Anywhere telemedicine platform to make AA fit-for-purpose for consultations, structured education and pump starts during COVID19 pandemic.
