Promoting Your Local NHS Service
Through this service Healthcare Professionals taking part will receive guidance, resources and coaching for the development of a campaign for the promotion of their local NHS service.
They will gain an appreciation of the steps involved in the development of the campaign and learn to use a series of techniques to develop the content of these steps. This service is intended to benefit the NHS through the recipients gaining the ability to develop a promotional campaign through a cost and time effective process, so optimising the resource allocated to this exercise.
The above services can be provided in a one to one meeting or given as an interactive presentation in a group setting by a Pfizer Account Manager. The Pfizer Account manager will also provide his or her knowledge and understanding of the Local Health Economy.
Diabetes Notes Review Service
Through this service Healthcare Professionals will assess the treatment of their diabetic patients with a diabetologist or diabetes clinical nurse specialist who will help encourage and support positive changes in the management of diabetic patients.
It is intended that Healthcare Professionals, and therefore the Healthcare Organisations for which they work, will benefit by optimising their ability, and that of others, to more effectively treat diabetic patients. They will also improve their understanding of those patients who may be suitable for referral and those who can be treated more locally through improved clinical practice. This will help to drive the improvement of the health of the local population, and/or the efficiency of the local healthcare economy.
The Diabetes Notes Review Service is delivered as a half day round table meeting led by a Senior Hospital Doctor or Clinical Nurse Specialist from the field of Diabetes. Individual patient cases are reviewed, treatment options considered, education on effective diabetes care is given and consensus reached by the Healthcare Professionals on the treatment pathway for patients now and in the future.
