The award winning role of the Diabetic Eye Nurse at the University Hospitals of Leicester was established in July 2004 and is exclusive to the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
During the planning of the National Service Frame (NSF) work for diabetes, it was established that there was no dedicated diabetic support for ophthalmic patients. The need to provide a comprehensive service to patients with suspected or proven retinopathy was evident. Thus the role was established.
Sabera Khan is an ophthalmic trained nurse with specialisation in diabetes care and works alongside the ophthalmologists in the Eye Department (Diabetic Retinal Clinics) and the Diabetes Team.
