In 2022/23, systems have been asked to focus programme funding on recovering the delivery of routine care, prioritising patients most at risk and reducing inequalities relating to deprivation. In 2021/22, a £5 million national recovery fund was established to support the recovery of routine diabetes care with innovative projects. This programme has approved 28 projects and delivery will continue in 2022/23. This is in addition to £75 million made available to integrated care systems until 2023/24 to support routine care and the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan’s commitments.
