Patients who have Diabetes will see our Practice Nurse for an annual review each year. At your annual review we will take a blood sample to check your HbA1c levels (this blood test helps us know how well controlled your Diabetes is) we encourage our Diabetic patients to have their HbA1c level checked every 6 months. If your levels are too high we may advise having them checked more often than this.

 

Diabetic patients are also required to have their feet checked every year as well as having an eye test.

 

Foot checks are completed at the practice for patients who are identified as being low risk of foot problems, for patients who are identified as medium or high risk they will be referred to see the specialist Podiatrists and are then followed up by them each year.

 

Eye checks are done by the Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Service. When you eye test is done they will write to you to book your appointment. If you fail to respond to 2 letters from the service you will then be sent a reminder letter from the practice.

 

 


 

If you think you may have symptoms of Diabetes then please make an appointment with one of our Doctors to discuss it.
