I have really enjoyed educating patients, healthcare professionals and the public about diabetes throughout my career so far. To have my contribution formally acknowledged by receiving this Outstanding Educator award from the Quality in Care programme is truly humbling. I will continue to build on the diabetes education focus that my team and I have developed over the last few years.
