First-hand speaker experience
I am a Practice Nurse based in Central Manchester and have worked across the city over the past 5 years. Due to the high prevalence of patients living with Diabetes in Manchester, I have developed a specialist interest; particularly Type 2 Diabetes, Prediabetes and Diabetes Prevention.
I am the Diabetes Nurse Lead for my current practice and have been involved with various projects within my practice, specifically around patient education and engagement. Our practice is also linked with the Community Diabetes and Education Service (CoDES). I am currently part of the Greater Manchester Diabetes Focus Group, aiming to improve Diabetes care across Manchester and looking at strategies to improve care outcomes by upskilling primary care clinicians who have direct and regular contact with patients.
