About the audit

The NPDA aims to provide information that leads to an improved quality of care for children and young people living with diabetes in England and Wales. The audit is counselled by a Project Board and Methodology & Dataset Working Group, who meet quarterly at the RCPCH. For more information, see our About NPDA page.

Current opportunities

Support the work of the NPDA by joining our Project Board and/or Methodology & Dataset Group. You'll attend quarterly meetings at our London office, read and comment on project documents and be involved in communication activities.

We'd like additional Paediatric diabetes specialist nurses (PDSN) who are currently working in paediatric diabetes units in England and Wales to join our Project Board and/or Methodology & Dataset Group. Experience in a similar role is desirable but not essential. We're looking for people who can confidently and objectively represent their views and work well in a team.

We’re also looking for an additional parent or carer of a child who has been diagnosed with diabetes and is under the care of a paediatric diabetes clinic in England or Wales to join our Project Board. Familiarity with medical language and terminology relating to diabetes care is helpful, but not necessary - and we can support you, such as an informal chat after each meeting.

Getting involved

If you'd like to be considered for one of these roles, please download and complete the relevant expression of interest below, and return to npda@rcpch.ac.uk by Wednesday 7 August 2019.

We'll review all expressions of interest received and may follow up with a short telephone conversation about the opportunity. We aim to get back to everyone by Wednesday 21 August 2019.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the NPDA.
