The National Inpatient Diabetes COVID-19 Response Group has put together a series of guidance in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The group was set up at the beginning of the crisis and is chaired by Professor Gerry Rayman MBE, realising five guidelines and supporting information to aid healthcare professionals.
The clinical guidance has been pulled together with insight from clinical leads across UK centres which have so far gathered the greatest experience of looking after people with diabetes and COVID-19.
