Our Diabetes Community Clinic
Giving GPs access to specialist Consultant Diabetologists
Diabetes treatment in primary care is improved through the sharing of expert knowledge and advice from Consultant Diabetologists.
The SDS MyHealthcare Diabetes Community Clinic is a virtual review performed by a Consultant Diabetologist and a Diabetes Specialist Nurse. It provides advice and guidance to help with the management of patients with diabetes.
The vision is to further expand these clinics to involve GPs in Diabetes, and Practice Diabetes Nurses, and to offer follow-up face-to-face appointments with the Consultant.
The Community Clinics run a number of times each month, ensuring minimal waiting times.
Who are the clinics for?
The Community Clinics are particularly appropriate for:
Patients who are struggling to manage their diabetes
Patients whose treatment regime may need reviewing or changing
Any patients where the practice would benefit from advice and guidance
Who can use the clinics?
The Community Clinics are available to all Federation practices.The clinics have been running since May 2017 and so far 20 different practices have made use of them.
