It provides a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals from across the diabetes arena to come together to share experiences, gain real-world learning from top practitioners and meet those shaping the future of diabetes care, all in one place.

Grace Owusu, Diabetes Nurse, North Middlesex Hospital

Visitor Testimonial

“I enjoyed listening to the keynote speakers, diabetes specialists and doctors. The sessions available were very educational and engaging, I was able to learn a lot more about insulin, especially with the useful workshops. I now feel more comfortable changing and managing insulin for my patients, which is a very important thing I took away from the show.”

Dr Helen Drew, General Practitioner, Boughton House GP

Read what some of our visitors had to say about DPC2019

“I’ve learned a lot today- on the stands, and in the sessions especially. It’s important because you’re learning things that you don’t learn on-the-job because you simply don’t have time.”

Racquel John, Registered General Nurse, North Middlesex Hospital

“It compares well to the other conferences I have attended over the year and it is very nice to see obesity featured so much.”

Dr. Matt Capehorn, GPwSI Obesity & Diabetics, Rotherham Institute for Obesity

“The networking, patient education and educational talks on diet and obesity were very interesting and useful, I was able to pick up a lot of information on it all! Overall, the show carried a good positive vibe and good collective feel.”

Jonathan Durand, Lead Pharmacist, Foreham & Gosport CCG

“I attended this year off the back of a recommendation from a colleague, and I am glad I did! I loved the speakers, and the sessions were filled with good content. It was a worthwhile event and I will be back next year.”

Charlotte Mitchell, Podiatrist, Shropshire Community Centre

“I attended this year to revise my knowledge on diabetes healthcare to help with my general medical care. I was able to revise everything about diabetes, with a focus on lifestyle medicine and reinforcing a healthy lifestyle.”

Dr Domodhera Norosimhariah, Consultant Physician, East Suffolk NHS Hospitals

“I feel like it has brought the diabetes community together and the programme covered a wide range of topics. I also found the CPD training very useful as I don’t normally have time to get training elsewhere.”

Emily Budlong, Staff Nurse, Imperial Collage London
