Dr Stephen Stanaway
Reason for Nomination
Dr Stanaway cares deeply about the work that he does and understands that good relationships are central to supporting people with diabetes. The ethos of his young adult service is to 'keep them coming back' - the young person feeling safe and supported in clinic is the bedrock of the diabetes care his service provides and this is reflected in consultation style and the relationships in the diabetes team. Dr Stanaway was the first consultant in the UK to integrate psychological support into his young adult clinic and continues to develop the service with education and youth work support.
