This is an opportunity to join the diabetes specialist nurse team at the Elsie Bertram Diabetes Centre at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. The aim of the department is to provide patients with a high standard of care with a view of improving both health and quality of life.

This role will be predominantly within the Inpatient diabetes team, supporting adult inpatients on the medical and surgical wards, day procedures units and the emergency department. Up to 20% of hospital patients will have diabetes. Although, most of these patients will have been admitted with unrelated illness and conditions, having diabetes can increase the risk of complications, such as hypoglycaemia and this can result in an extended length of stay. This is why it is essential to provide an inpatient diabetes specialist service, to improve safety, support safe discharges and provide patients and staff with diabetes effective management.
