Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology, Barts Hospital
Dr Davison has been a Diabetes consultant for Barts Health since 2001, the diabetes maternity lead since 2004 and the clinical lead since 2010. Under her charge, diabetes consultants and specialist nurses have been placed at the centre of inpatient care, reducing length of stay by an average of 1.5 days.
As a Clinical Champion, Rina has been involved in shaping the gestational care in her local area following the release of the new NICE guidelines. She has also been involved in writing the new maternity guidelines across Barts Health and has used the Clinical Champion role to build ties with community midwifery. She has also worked closely with local GPs to run a Diabetes UK “Living with Diabetes” day and in the last six months has successfully managed to gain the confidence of 2 neighbouring CCG's in terms of providing a cohesive intermediate diabetes community service.
