As diabetes specialists in service redesign, healthcare professional training and direct patient care, we have developed flexible and engaging training solutions that up-skill primary care workers and promote improved outcomes for people with diabetes. Our patients demand consistent, high quality support from their diabetes team and this has informed the practical resources and care pathways that form the backbone of our courses. We equip students to meet the patients' expectations of consistent, high quality care. PITstop has received accreditation from the RCGP and the University of Greenwich, with recognition from NICE and Diabetes UK and we have been been nominated finalists for national awards.


We are a small team of diabetes experts with extensive experience in both supporting people with Type 2 diabetes and training healthcare professionals and patients to manage diabetes effectively. We are focused on delivering the very best courses and training programmes that mean healthcare professionals can confidently deliver best practice diabetes care.
