Paul Dromgoole

Paul has over 20 years’ experience in diabetes management in Primary Care and Secondary Care Settings in Brighton, Leicester and York, where he previously worked as a half-time Lecturer Practitioner in Diabetes at the University of York and an External Examiner for the University of Ulster.

He has extensive experience of supporting General Practice in clinical decision making and best practice in diabetes management and his teaching sessions and workshops are consistently highly evaluated for their clinical content, delivery and application to ‘real-life’ clinical practice.

Paul feels as passionate at being involved in diabetes as 20 years ago, with some excellent therapies, with strong evidence of protecting patients into the future: Importantly, if we can get them ‘on board’.

Paul now combines a 2 day a week role as Clinical Nurse Specialist in Diabetes, with freelance Lecturing work throughout the UK.

Outside of work he is a keen Scuba Diver and PADI Dive Instructor and now proud owner of a classic 1947 BSA Motorcycle (any help with kick-starting would be welcome!)
