Research

Research ensures that our counselling, professional development and training are based on a substantial body of knowledge. While individuals involved with the Trust are regularly involved in research, the Trust itself is invited to join research projects from time to time.

The most recent project with which the Trust has been involved was the 3 Dimensions of Care for Diabetes (3DfD) led by King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Many people with persistent, poorly controlled diabetes also have additional psychological and social problems, which impinge on their ability to manage their diabetes care effectively. The 3DFD project established a service that fully integrates medical, psychological and social care for this group of patients with the aim of improving diabetes control, quality of life and quality in care with associated cost efficiencies. Patient satisfaction has been unanimous and the model has been adopted for its sustainability potential by the Guy’s and St Thomas’ Diabetes Modernisation Initiative.

The success of the project was recognized in 2011 when it won a QiC Award. The photo shows the team with their award. HCT’s Founder and Clinical Lead, Dr Kitty Morgan-Jones, is on the extreme right of the picture.
