ABCD welcomes the appointment of Dr Clare Hambling as the new National Clinical Director for Diabetes and Obesity.
Professor Ketan Dhatariya (who is a fellow Norfolk resident) said:
“We are delighted that NHSE has chosen a primary care colleague to lead the development of diabetes services across England. I, and many other ABCD members, have worked with Clare in the past and of course, we have worked closely with NHSE and the previous NCDs over many years. As such we look forward to having a very fruitful collaborative partnership with Clare going forward.”
The National Clinical Directors and National Specialty Advisers are practicing clinicians from across England who work part-time at NHS England, providing clinical leadership, advice, input and support across distinct areas of NHS conditions and services in line with the NHS Long Term Plan.
