The membership of the panel is kept under review to ensure that it is fully represented by members with a wide range of skills and expertise in Diabetes Mellitus.

The panel routinely uses the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines to help inform the medical standards of fitness to drive and often invites guest speakers and representatives from other medical organisations to obtain more information on a specific topic.
