Diabetes UK Professional Conference: Online Series - Registration information

Register now

Welcome to the Diabetes UK Professional Conference: Online Series 

Taking place from 13 October to 25 November 2020, our brand new online series has been designed to review the impact of coronavirus on diabetes services and focus on what we have learnt throughout the year.

How have services developed to meet the challenges caused by the pandemic? How have we supported people with diabetes to self-manage safely and well? And what have we learnt to improve outcomes for people with diabetes in the future? 

These are just some of the questions our online series will answer, helping you to review your own services and meet the challenges of the months ahead as we await a vaccine.

Plus, we’re excited to announce the closing event for the series will feature a message from Sir Simon Stevens, Chief Executive Officer of NHS England followed by Chris Askew, our CEO, in conversation with Professor Partha Kar, National Specialty Advisor, Diabetes with NHS England and co-lead of Diabetes GIRFT with NHS Improvement.
