Engaging healthcare professionals in Northern Ireland

Diabetes UK Northern Ireland works with a range of local healthcare professionals, providing resources, offering help, support and opportunities to volunteer, as well as sharing the latest information and expertise. The strong bonds that we have with our local healthcare professionals is vital to the work that we do and ultimately, we all want to help people living with this relentless condition.

The Covid-19 pandemic created an ever-changing environment for people living with diabetes and healthcare professionals, and access to care and services have also been impacted. We are delighted to have four healthcare professionals, featured below, outlining some of these changes and what to expect from some of your diabetes services. These videos will give you a bit more information about accessing and attending appointments and be able to guide you on getting real value from your appointments.
