Diabetes Specialist Nurse,

My clinical background is originally in District Nursing. I became a DSN 5.5 years ago. I completed my NMP in July 2016.I currently work with the Community Diabetes Specialist Team, Hillingdon.
As a DSN/NMP I assess, review and implement treatment regimens to help people living with diabetes to achieve their individualised HbA1c target. Complex patients are referred to the team from various health care professionals. My caseload consists of approx. 90% people with T2DM and 10% people with T1DM
I am also part of the Hillingdon Integrated Diabetes Service, teaching and supporting HCPs in practice. Additionally I am a mentor to nursing students, clinical pharmacists and GP’s within the community environment.
