Barnet GP Diabetes Forum


With the rising prevalence of diabetes, primary care is faced with increasing challenges in the management of this complex condition. The Diabetes Forum aims to create a learning environment for local clinicians, in which they will have the opportunity to learn from and discuss with experts in the field of diabetes. The forum runs on a quarterly basis, at Edgware Community Hopsital and Finchley Memorial Hospital. There will be an opportunity to interact with representatives from 3 pharmaceutical industry companies before/after each forum event. On the 1st May event we are planning to have representatives from Astra Zeneca, Dermatonics and Novonordisk; who will have promotional exhibition stands at the meeting. With their financial support the Diabetes forum is able fund speakers, venue hiring, catering and the general organisation of the event.
