Tell us a little about yourself? 

I was trained at the University of Cambridge and the London Hospital Medical College, and I am now currently the Professor in Diabetes and Endocrinology at the University of Southampton and an Honorary Consultant Physician in Diabetes and Endocrinology at the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.

My research interests are broadly focused around clinical diabetes but specifically encompass studies of the relationship between mental illness and diabetes and, diabetes and pregnancy. My day to day clinical responsibilities include the diabetes and pregnancy clinic, young adult diabetes clinic and the cystic fibrosis related diabetes service.

I am also the Editor-in-Chief of Diabetic Medicine (2016-2020) and is a past-Chair of the Council of Health Care Professionals of Diabetes UK, I am a member of the 2008 NICE diabetes and pregnancy guideline development group and the NICE Type 2 diabetes: preventing the progression from pre-diabetes programme development group. Alongside this I am the Editor-in-Chief of the 5th edition of the Textbook of Diabetes. I am the current Chair of the EASD Committee for Clinical Affairs and was the EASD co-chair of the EASD-ADA consensus report of the management of type 1 diabetes in adults.

What’s the one thing you wish everyone know about diabetes? 

There has been so many changes in diabetes care since I qualified and I think that we are living in exciting times with many new developments around the corner that will help people with diabetes
