Dr Astha Soni, Consultant Paediatrician, Sheffield Children's NHS foundation Trust

I am a consultant paediatrician at Sheffield children’s hospital NHS trust(SCH) since 2016. I am a general paediatrician and specialise in looking after children and young people with diabetes. I completed my basic medical degree in India and trained as a paediatrician in the UK.

I lead the diabetes transition service within SCH. I have experience in looking after CYP till they are 20 years of age. I am a committee member of Association of children’s diabetes clinicians (ACDC) and have contributed towards many National guidelines and have co-authored several papers on diabetes. I co-led the development of National guideline on Management of Type 2 diabetes in Children and young people.

I am also vice-chair for the Yorkshire and Humber diabetes network. This role involves being part of the steering committee and working together with the units to achieve best outcomes for all the units involved.

I am a part of highly motivated and successful diabetes team. Within our team, I am responsible for updating our local guidelines as well as all the patient information documents. I have contributed significantly to all the positive changes we have made to our service over last few years. We participated in pilot QI initiative by RCPCH in 2017. We have won meditech innovation award in 2018 and were runners up for BMJ team of the year award in 2019. Our QI work has been recognised nationally.
