CCG case study

Debbie McCausland, Paediatric Diabetes Specialist Nurse / Interim Lead Diabetes at Walsall CCG, explains how the Carbs & Cals books have helped their patients:

“Last year the CCG took the decision to purchase Carbs & Cals books so they can be given out in the Type 1 starter packs and used for people with Type 2 diabetes for carb and calorie awareness.

The books are given out at the appropriate education sessions and within clinic reviews when needed. They have been a very useful aid for families starting out with counting carbohydrates to help them calculate their insulin dose. We encourage families to download the Carbs & Cals app to use when out and about.

Prior to purchasing these books, patients were encouraged to buy them themselves; now the team give them out for free. Patients (both adult and children) have all commented about how useful the books are and like them very much. Those that have used the app find it useful when eating out.”
