ThISe programme will enable 1000 patients in these countries with Type 2 diabetes to access tailored support, empowering them to self-manage their condition and improve their wellbeing. As a result of improving patients’ long-term health and wellbeing, it is estimated the project will see a 30% per person reduction to state funded health services per year – anticipated to save €1.25 million (£1.09 million) per 1000 patients per year.
More than €1.9 million (£1.6 million) of European funding (from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)) has been secured by a cross-border partnership to develop a pan-European approach to tackling Type 2 diabetes. Called DWELL (Diabetes and WELLbeing) this initiative involves eight partners from the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands and France.
