Recent innovations have involved the Hypoglycaemia Hotline which was recognised in the Guardian Healthcare Awards 2013. He also leads the Type 1 Diabetes service, focusing on adolescent diabetes using technology and social media (twitter account: @parthaskar and blog: to improve care). He has also led the change to the local Diabetes adolescent service resulting in recognition at the BMJ Awards 2015

 He also holds the role of Clinical Service Director for community services in South East Hampshire, along with being nominated to the General Advisory Council of the Kings Fund. He has recently joined Ascot & Bracknell CCG as a secondary care advisor along with being appointed as a Specialist advisor for the Care Quality Commission.
