Prof Partha Kar

National Specialty Advisor, Diabetes, NHS England Co-lead of Diabetes GIRFT with NHS Improvement

Prof Partha Kar has been a Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust since 2008. He was Clinical Director of Diabetes from 2009 to 2015, and the department won several awards (Health Service Journal [HSJ] Awards/BMJ Awards) due to the department’s services and the care provided.

His other work has involved updating driving guidelines in relation to use of technology in people living with diabetes, helping to develop a virtual reality programme to improve hospital safety, and starting work on increased mental health access for people with diabetes across the NHS. He is the pioneer of the ‘Super Six Diabetes Model’, which aims to develop innovative ways to deliver diabetes care, and is recognised as a successful example of integrated care.

Partha is an avid user of social media to engage with patients—and he has been recognised as a “Social media Pioneer” by HSJ in 2014. He has recently been named in the HSJ Top 100 and as one of the most influential BAME practioners in British healthcare. He also writes a monthly blog for the BMJ, has a personal blog (‘Sugar and Spice: Wish all things were nice’) and a podcast (‘Sweet Talking’)
