Children with diabetes should be managed locally

Neil Hopper


Sunderland, UK.


Paediatric diabetes is a common, chronic, largely self managed disease. The problems children and young people deal with are complex and wide-ranging in scope. The key to success lies in close, personalised support and education for families facing this condition by an MDT who knows them well and is familiar with the local environment.

I will put the case that this is best delivered in the UK by properly trained, resourced and accountable local teams, supported by regional and national networks.
