Diabetes is a leading cause of premature mortality, with over 22,000 additional deaths each year. It doubles an individual’s risk of cardiovascular disease and costs over £10 billion every year to manage.
What impact has COVID-19 had on the national plans for diabetes prevention, management and care?
The HSJ Diabetes Virtual Forum will bring together national and local leaders, senior managers, clinicians, industry and the third sector to examine the next steps in ensuring progress is made on national aims, and that the innovations and learning from the pandemic are not lost.
Together, we will assess the response to the pandemic by peers working in diabetes prevention, care and treatment. We will explore how services have adapted, and how you can take forward the learning within your own work to transform outcomes in your area.
The health and wellbeing of our attendees, speakers and staff is our top priority at this time. By adopting a virtual event proposition, we are able to continue providing worthwhile interactive content and updates, while staying safe at home and precluding the need for travel.
