"The National Network will work together with children, young people and their families to ensure high quality care and support, to live a healthy and happy life"

Fiona Campbell

Clinical Lead for the National Children & Young People's Diabetes Network

The Challenge

There are around 27,115 children and young people with diabetes aged under 19 in England and Wales (around 96 per cent have Type 1 diabetes).

At the present time the outcomes for children with diabetes in the UK compare poorly with many other developed countries. Therefore, we need to work together as an extended community to improve the quality of planning, commissioning, delivery and regulation of services in order to achieve better outcomes for children, young people and their families.
