Delivering high-quality diabetes care is a challenge that we all face together, and we are thus delighted to gather many of the leading diabetes clinicians in the UK to offer you a range of educational activities specially developed and led for the primary care audience.This year, you will benefit from the same wide choice of sessions as at last year’s conference, but mapping a pathway to meet your key educational needs will be even easier thanks to our simple thematic labelling of sessions. And, as ever, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues old and new. You will also be able to bolster your CPD profile, not just with the information presented by our experts over the 2 days but also through our exclusive PCDS 365 materials that will be linked to sessions at the event, in order to help you build on everything you learn over the conference.We promise that we will both challenge your thinking and offer you reason for shared hope in the future of primary care diabetes. I hope to see you there,Clare Hambling, Chair, Primary Care Diabetes Society
