If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Diabetes service

Our diabetes service cares for children and young people with diabetes. We also offer an active insulin pump service for patients.

As well as care, we provide diabetes education and fun activities, working closely with schools, families and other carers.

We work closely with colleagues in the community, and in other hospital services. We support children in the intensive care unit and children with diabetes and kidney disease.

We run a specialist transition service for young people moving from the children’s service to the adult diabetes service.
