Diabetes Research

It’s World Diabetes Week and UHP continue to support research studies aimed at helping to shape the future of the treatment of diabetes. In collaboration with local GP surgeries the Trust continues to explore new and licensed diabetes medications and their benefits for other medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, renal disease and liver disease. Diabetes is rapidly increasing but the research team is here to help produce evidence for better treatment and care.


Dr Patrick English, Medical Diabetes Consultant from UHP, states that: “Diabetes therapies in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and their associated technologies have progressed rapidly in the last decade to improve the lives of those living with diabetes. Actively participating in and contributing to research is the only sure way to ensure this development continues to improve lives and avoid unnecessary suffering in the future.”
