13th Scottish Conference of the Primary Care Diabetes Society | Diabetes on the Net

Diabetes on the Net is intended for healthcare professionals

Tuesday 20 October 2020

The Primary Care Diabetes Society
Now Virtual

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 Scottish perspective. This year, the 13th for the event, we will celebrate the heritage of this event by doing what we do best: exploring a range of issues that impact the most on day-to-day diabetes care delivery in Scotland. And we will be doing so in a new virtual format.

As the Scottish representatives of the PCDS Committee, we are delighted to be delivering this invaluable opportunity for us all to come together, virtually, and discuss the real core issues in Scottish diabetes care delivery.

We look forward to welcoming you to the virtual conference.
