One of our team managers visited Westminster to provide expert advice at an All Party Parliamentary Group on Diabetes.
Kizzy Harris, Team Manager of the Diabetes and Nutrition Service, attended the round table discussion on 19 November alongside Bristol Diabetes UK Service Champion Sandra Twedell. The Parliamentary Group, which is running a year-long investigation into diabetes education and support, is keen to learn more about Bristol’s approach to delivering diabetes education.
Kizzy said: “I was delighted to be invited to the discussion – the debate at parliament enabled us to gather and share details of best practice. Our education work is comprehensive: we have developed a range of innovative video clips, trained over 30 Diabetes Health Champion volunteers and are running a drop in clinic for those that don’t want to come to a course.”
