At a Glance

We care for children and young people with diabetes from the ages of 0-18 years, predominantly with Type 1 diabetes.

We also care for children with Type 2 diabetes and Cystic Fibrosis-related diabetes. We provide a multi-professional service supporting children, their families, school and other organisations.

How can I refer my child to this service?

Children are referred via their GP to the Paediatric Assessment Unit at diagnosis. Children based outside of Gloucestershire are referred to us by their previous Consultant or GP.

How are children transitioned to adult services?

Children in Gloucestershire start the transition process at the age of 11 using the Ready, Steady, Go programme. They are transferred to adult services between the ages of 16-18 year depending on the individual circumstances.
