Diabetes: Children and young people

The paediatric diabetes team is divided into the three localities of Redditch, Worcester and the Wyre Forest. You will be referred to the nearest centre to where you live.

It is recommended that a child or young person with diabetes is looked after by a specialist team of professionals in paediatric diabetes.

Your child will be seen in clinic every three months for review by your Consultant, paediatric diabetes specialist nurse and dietician. The team psychologist may also be present during clinic appointments.

You are encouraged to contact the team should you have any queries or concerns between these visits. Your paediatric diabetes specialist nurse will also visit you at home from time to time to help with problem solving and continuing with ongoing education regarding diabetes.
