Diabetic Nurse clinics

We aim to improve the quality of life for patients with diabetes by optimising their glycaemic control; and to prevent potential Diabetic complications.

Patients newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes will be offered referral for 'Type 2 Diabetes structured education' with the West Hampshire Community Diabetes Team. Initially the education is in the form of educational videos and electronic materials. Our Practice Nurse will also send you lots of information about diet, exercise, and information about Type 2 Diabetes. You will also be offered an appointment with the Practice Nurse to answer any further questions or concerns you may have.  

Your care will be managed by your usual GP and a health care assistant. Type 2 patients who are on insulin or Diabetic injection (GLP1) will be seen by a Practice Nurse who has completed relevant training for this group of patients. They will also be supported by the West Hampshire Community Diabetes team.

Patients diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes are managed by West Hampshire Community Diabetes team and their usual GP.

All type 1 and 2 Diabetics are offered annual reviews with the practice Health Care Assistant who will check your BP, height, weight and foot check. You will also be asked to have a blood and urine test to help your GP assess your diabetes. You will receive an invite for retinal screening, this is normally done locally by the ophthalmology department. This is an annual screening to monitor your eye health in relation to diabetes
