The Joint British Diabetes Societies for Inpatient Care (JBDS-IP) was created in 2008 to ‘deliver a set of diabetes inpatient guidelines and propose standards of care within secondary care organisations’. JBDS-IP is supported by Diabetes UK, the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) and the Diabetes Inpatient Specialist Nurse (DISN) UK Group. JDBS-IP also work with NHS England, TREND-UK and other professional organisations.
JBDS-IP consists of a number members and all four nations are represented. Members meet face-to-face twice a year and also connect via regular teleconferences.
