Diabetes Research Steering Group: Acute Care

The Acute Care group will focus on the urgent in-hospital care that people with diabetes need and receive. This group will cover urgent in-hospital care, including - but not limited to - severe hypoglycaemia, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state (HHS). 

It will also cover in-patient care for people with diabetes and its complications.

If you would like to share your views with the group on where research into acute care for people with diabetes should be focused, please get in touch:

Chair: Dr Gerry Rayman, Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust


Dr Gerry Rayman’s research interests include new technologies in diabetes care, such as improving the early detection of diabetic neuropathy and continuous glucose sensing. 

Who's involved?

The Diabetes Research Steering Groups are bringing together researchers, healthcare professionals and people with diabetes to create a roadmap for new research.
