"British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (BSPED) aims to improve the care of children and young people with endocrine disorders and diabetes mellitus by bringing together professionals from a range of disciplines, including tertiary paediatric endocrinologists and diabetologists, general paediatricians with an interest in endocrinology and/or diabetes, researchers, nurses and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of these patients. The British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (BSPED) is recognised by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) as the sole UK society responsible for this field of paediatric medicine. We govern the training of doctors in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes, and actively support the ongoing training and education of healthcare professionals in this specialist area. The society encourages collaboration and open dialogue, with abundant opportunities for the dissemination of research results. The BSPED promotes the generation of evidence-based guidelines that will lead to more consistent management of endocrine disorders and diabetes mellitus throughout the UK. The society also aims to advance education in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes for professionals, patients and their parents. The BSPED is able to fund research and clinical audits with support from a number of benefactors.
