The Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) Excellence in Patient Care Awards aim to recognise, celebrate and promote the work that physicians do to improve patient care through education, policy, clinical practice and research. The team were recognised and awarded for outstanding work in enhancing medical education.

MITS stands for ‘Making Insulin Treatment Safer’. It uses the SMAC2 reflective tool to help insulin prescribers develop 'situation awareness'. SMAC2 empowers prescribers to acknowledge when they are uncertain. It encourages them to seek information and supplement their personal resources by involving patients, fellow professionals, and seniors.
