Many people with diabetes have multiple and complex health problems and, with this significant risk in mind, the potential delay or missed diagnosis of the patient can have serious consequences. This conference looks at the condition in detail, with top medical experts covering endocrinology, the GP’s perspective on diabetes in the community, renal complications, diabetes in children, peripheral vascular complications, diabetes in obstetrics and there will also be the legal view on how to run a case arising from negligent management of diabetes.

This conference was originally due to take place in December 2021 but unfortunately had to be postponed due to Covid, so we are delighted to now be able to run the event, and our thanks go to Evelyn Partners for hosting. Booking now open!

Venue details: Evelyn Partners, London (45 Gresham St, London EC2V 7BG). Please note this event is in-person only, if this changes we will let you know.
