Children’s Diabetes Team

Who we are

We support children and young people with diabetes mellitus and their families until they move to the adult service.

What we do

We provide support on local children’s wards as well as carrying out home school and clinic visits and providing telephone and email support. We work closely with specialist paediatric diabetes dieticians and consultant paediatricians.

Although our caseload is mainly the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust paediatric diabetes population, we will support any child or young person with diabetes living in or visiting the area.

How do you use this service?

You can get in touch using the information here or you can be referred by a GP or healthcare professional.
