The Primary Care Diabetes Society (PCDS) is pleased to announce this year’s Welsh conference, which will be taking place in a new virtual format.

Organised by the PCDS, the only association solely committed to the needs of primary care diabetes, this virtual conference will examine diabetes care from a Welsh perspective. Through a mixture of lectures and masterclasses, the conference will provide practical guidance to healthcare professionals, focusing on those issues that impact the most on everyday diabetes practice in Wales and beyond.

We are delighted to be delivering an event that we feel provides an invaluable opportunity for us to come together, virtually, and cover the real core issues in day-to-day diabetes care delivery in Wales.
