Neville Scholten

Operations Lead for Diabetes type 2 Structured Education Services

A diagnosis of type 2 diabetes can be overwhelming. But small changes to eating habits and being more active can help better manage diabetes. Structured education is offered at the point of diagnosis by GPs or other healthcare professionals, to help people understand an self-manage their diabetes.

As one of our Clinical Champions, Neville's ultimate aim is to increase uptake of structured education for people with diabetes. He hopes to do this by making the programme flexible and responsive to the needs of the community. As well as ensuring that long-term support is available to create sustained lifestyle improvement.

Background

Neville started working for the NHS in 2009 focusing in health promotion programmes. In 2018 he took on the role as Operational Lead for Diabetes Type 2 Education services across Derbyshire. In this role he works alongside a fantastic and supportive team, who are passionate about delivering excellent care for people living with diabetes.

Being active is a big part of Neville’s life and has helped him to stay healthy. Neville leads spinning and other exercise classes at the local leisure centre. He also enjoys gardening and cooking when allowed in the kitchen (although when he is it means it’s only to wash the pots)!
