The second podcast from the Diabetes Times hears from Diabetes and Endocrinology Consultant Professor Ketan Dhatariya, who spoke about becoming the new chair of the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD). 

The Talking Diabetes series features leading healthcare professionals and academics as they share their expertise and thoughts on the hot topics from the world of diabetes.

During the episode, Professor Dhatariya also speaks about his involvement with the JBDS, where he is currently the Co-Chair of the organisation.

Professor Dhatariya shares what he hopes to achieve in his new role with the ABCD and how he hopes to stay involved with the JBDS.

He started his diabetes career on the Isle of Wight, before continuing with a succession of registrar jobs in South East London between 1997 and 2001.

Professor Dhatariya finished his training in diabetes and endocrinology in 2001, but instead of taking up a consultant post in Dartford in Kent, he opted to give it all up and go and do research in America.

Returning to the UK in 2003, he worked as a locum consultant at King’s College Hospital. Now he has several national roles in the UK which are all based around different aspects of diabetes – including being the Co-Chair of the JBDS and a Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Professor Dhatariya is also ranked fourth on the international Expertscape list for his work as a specialist in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).
