Diabetes

More than 3 million people in the UK are known to have diabetes and there are an estimated 850,000 people in the UK who have diabetes but do not know it. Over three-quarters of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. There has never been a more critical time to ensure the healthcare workforce are skilled to deal with this growing epidemic.

What if you could play a pivotal role in providing diabetes care that makes a real difference to patients and helps to tackle the rising costs in the NHS?
