Speaker - Partha Kar
Professor Partha
Portsmouth Hospital University NHS Trust, Portsmouth, United Kingdom

Professor Partha Kar is National Specialty Advisor of Diabetes with NHS England, UK. He is also Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, Portsmouth, UK and has won multiple awards, as well as being recognised by the Kings Fund and NHS England, UK.

He has helped to expand the use of technology in type 1 diabetes (T1D), namely the use of flash glucose and continuous glucose monitoring in pregnancy and online digital self-management platforms, while recently leading on real-world data collection on closed loops for subsequent NICE review. As a result, NICE updated their guidelines to ensure all people with T1D have access to relevant technology and to champion the Language Matters guidance.

He is one of the leading users of social media in diabetes care, writes a monthly blog for The BMJ, and has been the co-creator of Talking About Diabetes (TED talks from those with T1D), T1D comic (Volume 1 to 3) and virtual reality-based programmes to help education in diabetes.


He received an OBE in 2021 for services to diabetes care. He has also been recognised as one of the most influential figures from the ethnic minority population across healthcare by the HSJ.
