Diabetes

Diabetic Clinics are held at the practice every week. The clinics are held for Annual Reviews and follow up reviews.

Diabetic patients can call the practice and request a telephone consultation for advice on Diabetes related problems.

The Diabetes Team at the Practice have put together some online resources to help adult patients with diabetes with self-care at home. If you are pregnant and have diabetes or have a child with diabetes, you must contact your specialist hospital diabetes team for advice.
