TypeAdult Services - Diabetes MDT
The countywide Diabetes Multidisciplinary team promotes self-management to avoid acute and long-term complications of diabetes through 1-1 clinic appointments and group education courses taught by diabetes specialist educators. We also offer telephone and email support for people with diabetes and their carers.
We offer locality based clinics for patients who need to be accommodated urgently and for those with type 1 diabetes with highly complex needs, as well as services outside of working hours. Our teams consist of specialist consultants, dietitians, nurses, support workers and diabetes educators. We also work closely with the podiatry team to ensure fast access to diabetes podiatry clinics.
The Diabetes Psychological Wellbeing Service provides psychological assessment and goal orientated interventions to patients who are struggling to cope with or manage their diabetes.
Who is this service for? Pre-diabetic and diabetic adults throughout every stage of their diabetes. Carers are welcome.
