Diabetes UK is looking for podiatrists to become Clinical Champions

Diabetes UK is looking for podiatrists to take part in its Clinical Champions programme and lead improvements in diabetes care. 

The initiative was launched to address the significant variation in patient care and treatment for people living with diabetes in the UK.

Since the programme began, 65 clinicians including podiatrists have been recruited to develop their leadership skills and become champions for improving diabetes care. Between them they have trained thousands of other healthcare professionals, developed innovative new clinics, reduced medication errors and increased the number of people receiving treatment for diabetes. 

The new champions will be selected based on their leadership potential, clinical expertise and a demonstrable passion for transforming care for people with diabetes. They will be supported with two years of training alongside their clinical work, to help them become strong leaders, identify improvements and drive vital change in diabetes services in their local areas. 

Amy Rylance, Diabetes UK’s Head of Healthcare Professional Engagement, said: ‘Clinical Champions help transform diabetes care, which in turn reduces the risk of devastating complications, and makes a significant difference to the lives of people with diabetes.’
