Become part of Trend UK now

TREND-UK is a working group of diabetes nurses with different skills and backgrounds, set up in 2009 in response to a request by the diabetes tsar at that time for a collective voice that represented all diabetes nursing groups. The original founding co-chairs of TREND-UK were experienced nurse consultants, working in a variety of settings, and closely involved with most of the organisations representing nurses working in diabetes. These included the Royal College of Nursing Diabetes Forum, Diabetes UK and Primary Care Diabetes Society.

Who are we?

Trend UK has a core committee of three co-chairs, Jill Hill, Debbie Hicks and June James. They are supported by two very experienced associates with particular expertise in practice nursing, community diabetes services and pregnancy. Trend UK has welcomed the involvement of advisors representing in-patient nursing, district nursing and diabetes nursing in Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. The committee is keen to include representatives from nurses from a variety of diabetes working environments to truly be a voice for all nurses working in diabetes care but also to be a resource for those nurses.
