Diabetes Team Philosophy
Our team believes that our role as health care professionals is to deliver quality care by delivering age appropriate, up to date, consistent information and providing support in management. We aim to be a responsive service and work in partnership with our children and young people to ensure that this knowledge is suited to their needs. We believe that this knowledge will empower children and young people to gain the necessary skills in self -management and will help them and their families to make informed choices and set appropriate targets for their short and long term management goals.
