DPC2019 welcomes back NHS England Diabetes clinical directors Prof Jonathan Valabhji and Dr Partha Kar to deliver our opening keynote presentation.

Prof Valabhji, National Clinical Director for Obesity and Diabetes, and Dr Kar, Associate National Clinical Director and diabetes consultant, will deliver an update from the NHSE Diabetes Team on 29 October, the first day of the two-day conference.

At DPC2018, their keynote looked back at various strands of work completed by NHS England in diabetes over the previous year, including the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme and digital health initiatives.

A Q&A session at the end of the presentation also gave healthcare professionals the opportunity to question Prof Valabhji and Dr Kar on a range of issues relating to national diabetes policy and initiatives.

Dr Kar told DPC:

“Attending DPC provides an opportunity for us to interact with delegates, many of whom have responsibility for delivering diabetes care as part of the NHS Long Term Plan.

“Jonathan and I are delighted to be invited back to deliver the opening keynote at DPC2019, and we are especially looking forward to receiving valuable feedback from frontline healthcare professionals, who all have the same objective – improving health outcomes for each and every person with diabetes who they treat.”

A Q&A session will again follow the DPC2019 opening keynote, while panel sessions at the end of each day will provide a greater opportunity for interaction between visitors and speakers across the entire conference programme.
