GP, Brynteg Surgery, Ammanford
As one of our Clinical Champions, Dr Frater will be working to develop and scale her clinic which supports patients to achieve improved glycaemic control using the principles of lifestyle medicine.
Dr Frater has been working to create an integrated multi-disciplinary clinic in her local cluster network in West Wales.
Dr Frater had been practising as a GP for 5 years before she started feeling that more could be done to improve care of patients living with type 2 diabetes. She felt compelled to develop a service to educate and support individuals working towards managing their diabetes with lifestyle changes. With the support of her local cluster of GP surgeries Dr Frater was able to offer an intensive programme to help patients make meaningful changes. Since the first clinic in 2018 she has stopped over 80 repeat prescriptions and helped many to achieve diabetes remission.
Nerys is passionate to educate as many patients as possible and aspires to reach out to a wider audience, as well as develop and train other healthcare professionals wanting to do the same.
