About Trend Diabetes

Training Research and Education for Nurses in Diabetes

Trend Diabetes is a working group of nurses with a wide range of different skills and backgrounds in diabetes care. It was set up in 2009 in response to a request by the National Clinical Director for Diabetes at the time, who wanted a collective voice representing all diabetes nursing groups.


Providing a wealth of literature to support diabetes nursing, including leaflets, guidance and frameworks.


From our two National Conferences to our selection of specialist and online workshops, we stage a range of events.


Our bursary will help towards travel expenses or registration fees to an appropriate diabetes educational event.

Promoting insulin safety

Supporting Insulin Safety Week 2020 and World Diabetes Day as part of year-long campaign

Trend Diabetes is continuing to spread insulin safety awareness as part of our year-long campaign for the NHS and social care staff.

We are reminding healthcare workers that resources are still available to order should they wish to support the initiative. Copies of the Trend Diabetes insulin safety leaflet and crib cards are available to order now and throughout the rest of the year. To order, email Emily Mayhew.

This year, Trend Diabetes supported Insulin Safety Week 2020, which took place across the UK and Ireland between July 6 and 12, through our own Insulin Safety Campaign.
