You may come to us after seeing your GP, coming through A&E or from another team. We will start a management regime to suit you, this may change through life, depending on your needs and development of resources. As time goes on this might include continuous insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring.

We support schools to help support you, by providing education and care plans to guide management within school.

We provide tailored education about diabetes management to help you learn how to manage diabetes in the best way you can. We will provide the education where appropriate, this might be in hospital, your home, your school, or virtually.
