Diabetes Care

Our diabetes care is well recognized as being some of the best around. We offer a comprehensive support from the point of diagnosis where you will get an appointment with a GP and also a one-hour consultation with a nurse.

We now use a care and support planning approach to your diabetes care which means you will be offered a number of appointments each year.

One the month of your birth you will be offered TWO appointments

  1. Appointment one is with the Healthcare assistant who will check your blood pressure, blood tests and a number of other measurements. One the results of this appointment come back to the surgery we will pass them on to you.
  2. Appointment two is with a Nurse or GP who will focus on your current health and wellbeing goals to improve your health

Six months after the month of your birth you will be offered ONE further appointment which will be with the Healthcare assistant who will check your blood pressure, blood tests and other measurements.

You may be offered further interim appointments with one of the nurses especially if you are being treated with insulin and require further support.
