About the service

Welcome to the Diabetes service.

Diabetes. Prevent it. Cure it. Beat it.


For those at risk, we seek prevention. For those who have it, we seek a cure.

Until there's a cure, we aim to beat it:

  • We will provide timely specialist advice
  • We will facilitate informed choice
  • We will promote independence and self-care through education and empowerment. 

The adult diabetes team currently delivers over 30 clinics per week across health care venues in the St Helens borough, offering both weekend and evening appointments to support patient choice.

The department consists of:

  • Consultants who specialise in various aspects of diabetes and endocrinology
  • Nurse Consultant
  • Diabetes Specialist Nurses
  • Diabetes Nurse Educator
  • Diabetes Research Nurse
  • Diabetes Dietitian 
  • Diabetes Admin Staff

Over the last decade, the team have strived (and succeeded) to establish a structured, care pathway-driven, high quality service with engagement and involvement of its users, supported by its proactive diabetes user group.

The diabetes unit has an active research programme and has received national recognition for a high quality diabetes service.

Location - Diabetes Centre, Orange Zone, St Helens Hospital.
