A one day meeting for members of the ABCD Diabetes Technology Network

The DTN-UK meeting represents a unique opportunity for UK pump teams to come together to share ideas and best practice. The meeting will appeal to all consultants, SpRs, nurse specialists and dieticians involved or interested in insulin pump therapy. We are limited to 100 delegates, and in 2017 the meeting filled up quickly, so please ensure you reserve your place early. We look forward to seeing you there.

The meeting is open to healthcare professionals working with insulin pump technology only.

Conveniently for delegates the meeting will be followed by the opening of the ABCD Spring Meeting 2018
