'I'm proud to support others in the field' - Prof. Fran Game

Tuesday 11 February marks International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2020, which is a day to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. 

We will be sharing the stories of some of the extraordinary women in science who are working within research at the Trust.


Professor Fran Game, Clinical Director for Research and Development and Consultant Diabetologist

Professor Fran Game has been a consultant Diabetologist at the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust since 2011.  She is also the Clinical Director of Research and Development and the Derby Clinical Trials Support Unit.

Her main clinical and research interest is the Diabetic Foot, running several multicentre/multinational trials in this field. She is a recognised international expert in her disease area and, based on her publication record was recently named by Expertscape as the one of the top 10 world experts in diabetic foot disease based on publications since 2010.

She is especially interested in service development, particularly the need to manage diabetic foot disease in a more cost-effective way, closer to home for patients.

She currently chairs the Classification Subgroup of the International Working Group of the Diabetic Foot, and was the immediate past chair of the Wound Healing subgroup, leading on their published systematic reviews and international guidelines every four years.

She co-chairs the East Midlands Diabetic Foot Network and was appointed the NHS England Co-Clinical Director for Diabetes and Vascular Diseases for the East Midlands in May 2018.
