Welcoming the new PCDS Committee members

The new PCDS Committee members were announced during the PCDS Annual General Meeting at the Society’s 10th National Conference

The PCDS Committee is delighted to welcome its two newest elected members, Su Down and Nicola Milne.

Su has specialised in diabetes for 25 years and since 2005 has held the position of Diabetes Nurse Consultant in Somerset. Her particular interests are in elderly care, end-of-life care, insulin safety, injection technique, hypoglycaemia and pregnancy care. In her role as Clinical Lead for the intermediate service, she is responsible for the clinical supervision of the nursing team. The service is commissioned to deliver healthcare professional education to primary care, to the community nursing service and to care homes. The service also delivers group education to those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Nicola qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1988 and as a Midwife in 1991, moving into primary care in 2002, where she has since worked as a Practice Nurse. While retaining a generalist role, Nicola has a special interest in diabetes, with a key focus on ensuring effective, accessible care. Valuing engagement and the sharing of good practice, Nicola has become increasingly involved in educational activities supporting community nurses and has published articles on her work in chronic kidney disease and diabetes and on projects involved in diabetes prevention. She is currently a member of the Professional Conference Organising Committee of Diabetes UK.

David Millar-Jones, Claire Holt and Pam Brown, existing members of the Committee, have all been re-elected.

Children in Need collection
The PCDS Committee is delighted to announce that a donation of £595.50 has been made to Children in Need from the collection held at the Society’s Annual Dinner. Thank you for all the generous contributions.
