British Society of Lifestyle Medicine

British Society of Lifestyle Medicine (BSLM) is an independent charity, set up to promote the role of lifestyle medicine in improving people’s health and well being. We believe many chronic diseases can be prevented, managed and even reversed by properly applied lifestyle medicine principles.

With more than 1500 members drawn from a range of disciplines including primary and secondary care clinicians, allied and public health professionals, scientists, educators, researchers and patients.

In particular BSLM recognises the primacy of science and promotes the adoption of practical tools in management of the wider determinants of lifestyle related disease. BSLM does not adhere to any single approach to nutrition and encourages a range of dietary approaches that are supported by appropriate scientific evidence. We have no religious affiliations and no political affiliations.

Our key aims are to …

  • Raise awareness of the principles and practice of lifestyle medicine
  • Promote greater adoption of lifestyle medicine in healthcare and society
  • Provide opportunities for learning and knowledge sharing among healthcare professionals around lifestyle medicine
  • Develop a solid evidence-base to support the use of lifestyle medicine in the treatment, management and reversal of chronic disease

InDependent Diabetes Trust

The InDependent Diabetes Trust (IDDT) are an organisation for people living with diabetes run by people living with diabetes. We recognise that when one person in a family lives with diabetes, this affects other family members and we offer support to partners and parents. We raise awareness of important issues for people with diabetes and provide information in non-medical language.

The Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust is a registered charity and was formed in 1994. We are concerned with listening to the needs of people who live with diabetes, understanding those needs and doing our utmost to offer help and support. We recognise that when one person in a family has diabetes, all other family members are affected to a greater or lesser extent and they all have views and needs which may be different from the person with diabetes, but nevertheless are important.

The Trust was set up to look at some of the day to day difficulties of living with diabetes, the worries, fears and concerns that perhaps we don’t talk about at the hospital clinic- the ones that many of us experience and understand because we actually live with diabetes. As a charity, IDDT has a Board of Trustees and all Trustees either have diabetes or have family members with diabetes. So they all know first hand that while diabetes doesn’t rule our lives, it is an important part of them.

Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IoCP)

The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (IoCP) is a professional body that is dedicated to serving and supporting practitioners throughout the whole of the profession of podiatry and podiatric medicine. Its members include chiropodists, podiatrists and podiatric surgeons, within the NHS and/or private practice. Being granted the Institute certificate of membership is proof that such practitioners undertake to adhere to a strict code of ethics and the highest standards of professional conduct.

Members and their clients are protected by what is recognised as the UK podiatry’s most wide-ranging professional indemnity insurance and an exemplary range of academic and business support.

Our innovative approach to our profession provides the basis for growth, advancing the skills of the modern independent practitioner and the perception of podiatry from other healthcare professionals and the general public.

The Institute is a democratic organisation with the election of officers both local and national being decided annually by its members. All members therefore play an active role in their own affairs. The Institute believes a self-governing body should follow an independent line for the progress and well-being of both the profession and the public it serves.

JDRF logo


JDRF is the leading global charity funding type 1 diabetes research. We believe that gives us the best chance of making the breakthroughs to prevent, cure and find better treatments for type 1.

We understand the daily challenges that life with type 1 brings, which is why we’re committed to providing information, support and community for everyone living with the condition.

We also fight for the right of everyone with type 1 to have access to the technology they want or need, so that when research breakthroughs happen, the results get to the people who need it.

We focus on doing three things:

  • We invest in world-class research to find a cure faster and to improve treatments and prevention until that day arrives.
  • We campaign for better treatments, including providing access to type 1 technology for everyone who wants to use it.
  • We support and connect people living with type 1 diabetes.

Primary Care Dermatology Society

The Primary Care Dermatology Society (PCDS) has been a leader in Primary Care education for the past 29 years. The Society delivers over 40 educational meetings a year and is recognised as having one of the World's best dermatology websites

We recognise that many in primary care receive little or no dermatology education which is alarming considering the burden this places on practitioners with estimates that dermatological consultations range between 15%-23% of workload.

All of our courses are delivered peer-peer with a very experienced cohort of GPs, Nurses, Podiatrists and Pharmacists who have worked extensively in primary care and specialising in dermatology.  All courses for 2024 are listed and bookable via the website.
