Meet The Team
Hello, we're pleased to meet you!
Specialist physician, postgraduate diploma in diabetes (Cardiff), CEO of Diabetes West
A visionary and a dreamer who founded Diabetes West almost a decade ago. Now, Dr Dickson takes Diabetes West into the next phase of growth in which the team will expand from the solid foundation of the holistic patient-care clinic that Diabetes West is and reach out in collaboration with LETO, a non-prot organisation, to give more to the community and to help making diabetes care more accessible.
General practitioner, Postgraduate diploma in diabetes (Cardiff)
I feel it a gift to be of service to our patient community as part of our specialist team. Our work is most rewarding when we see our patients empowered and taking control of his or her own diabetes management. We aim to not just ‘give our patients a fish for one day, but rather teach our patients to fish for life’. This is what adds meaning to my life.
