We believe that diabetes should not stop you from doing anything you want to.

Listen to one of our patients Alex talk about the impact of Type 1 Diabetes on her life. Alex is 14-years-old and enjoys playing football and cricket. She has a good understanding of her condition and is able to independently manage her diabetes, with support from family, friends, school and our team. Listen to Alex's story on Youtube.

We need your help to improve diabetes care. Our Paediatric Diabetes service is part of the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit.
