West Kent Integrated Diabetes Service : West Kent Integrated Care Partnership
The WK ICP developed the new West Kent Integrated Diabetes Service. The WK ICP worked in close collaboration to remodel the diabetes service to improve efficiency, bring care closer to home, breakdown old barriers between primary and secondary care, and share experience between organisations. WK ICP was one of the first areas nationally to replace payments by results with an aligned incentive contract, sharing risk and reward between partners. A key to the success was the creation of the Joint Programme Management Office (JPMO) who support WK ICP partners organisations to collaboratively transforming entire system wide treatment pathways.
