Senior Lecturer - Metabolic Medicine and Hon Consultant Physician, Aston University and Clinical Director for Diabetes and Endocrinology at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust
Dr Sri Bellary is the Clinical Director for Diabetes and Endocrinology at the Heart of England Foundation NHS Trust and is a senior lecturer at the University of Aston where his research interests include genetics of type 2 diabetes, metabolic memory and new therapies for diabetes.
As a Clinical Champion, Sri was concerned about the disparity in GP practices achievement of the 9 NICE care processes. To reduce variation, Sri has worked closely with Diabetes UK to launch a Pan Birmingham network involving the 4 Birmingham CCG’s. This has now expanded as other local CCGs hear the benefits of sharing good practice examples with one another. Sri has also recently implemented a unified formulary across Birmingham that will provide equal access to diabetes drugs for all patients regardless of where they live.
