I strongly believe that l.jpg
I strongly believe that…

  • Everyone with diabetes deserves the highest standards of personalised diabetes care, no matter where, when or by whom it is delivered.

  • People providing diabetes care must be trained in diabetes and must know the boundaries of their knowledge.

  • They must have opportunities to extend these boundaries and to keep up-to-date.

  • People with diabetes and professionals must have ready access to specialist diabetes expertise.

  • We must improve information and education

  • We must improve uptake of retinopathy screening

  • We must always ensure that we work closely with people who have diabetes
