The Association of British Clinical Diabetologists has announced the launch of the Type 1 Diabetes Clinical Collaborative in the UK. This is a collaborative of healthcare professionals working in multi-disciplinary teams providing care for adults with Type 1 diabetes across the UK. The committee is made up of individual healthcare professionals from all the disciplines from the four nations who are passionate about raising the standards of care for people with Type 1 diabetes. It is currently chaired by Dr Rob Gregory, immediate past chair of ABCD, with Professor Stephanie Amiel and Professor Simon Heller as non-executive co-chairs. Diabetes UK is a partner in this initiative.
The Mission Statement of the collaborative is, “To ensure that everyone with Type 1 diabetes has access to a suitably-trained multidisciplinary specialist team for expert assessment, care and support for self-management.”
