I have been a diabetes specialist nurse for 18 years working at Sandwell & West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust. My role has evolved into specialising mainly in Type 1 diabetes, leading on an insulin pump service, specialised structured education (DAFNE) and Flash Glucose Monitoring. I hold a transitional clinic jointly with our paediatric team, liaising closely with the children’s team.
My role extends to the ongoing management of type 2 diabetes, and I am also non-medical prescriber.
