The department of Diabetic Medicine aims to improve the health of people with diabetes via education, training, research and through the service it provides.
The service seeks to offer the highest quality care to all local people with diabetes, regardless of age, gender or ethnic group, to enable every person with diabetes live a healthy and fulfilled life.
