Diabetic clinics are held by Dr Bonsey and Martine Dye, one of our Practice Nurses, on a Tuesday afternoon . Once a month a Diabetic Nurse Specialist and a Diabetic Nurse Dietician also hold a clinic here.
It is important to note that hospital-based diabetic clinics have moved away from full annual checks to a problem-solving approach. Therefore, even if you have been to a hospital clinic for an annual review, they are unlikely to have performed the complete range of tests that are recommended for annual follow-up. We very strongly encourage you to come to the annual check regardless of whether you have been seen in hospital.
Our practice team are always at hand to help you manage your diabetes effectively.
If appropriate, we will send written invitations to patients to attend an annual or six-monthly checkup. If, for any reason, you are unable to attend an appointment we would very much appreciate you contacting the surgery to cancel or re-arrange the appointment. Other patients may benefit from the released appointment.
