There are a number of services that can help you when it comes to looking after yourself if you have diabetes.
The majority of people with diabetes are looked after by the Practice diabetes team.
We like to see all patients with diabetes at least annually.
You will receive an invite for your annual health check. You will be asked to attend our HCA for Bloods, Height and Weight, Foot Check & Urine check. You will be asked to return in a few weeks, once bloods results are back, to see our Practice Nurse. At this appointment we will go over your blood results, medication and any issues you may have.
There are times when you will need to be seen more often, for example after you are first diagnosed or if problems are detected during one of the routine reviews. We arrange these additional reviews as needed and may be a nurse or one of the Doctors.
The Practice team
The Practice Nurse and your GP will usually provide this service with assistance from other health care professionals.
My Diabetes My Way
The NHS Scotland interactive diabetes website to help support people who have diabetes and their family and friends.
You’ll find leaflets, videos, educational tools and games containing information about diabetes. You can now also use this website to view your own up-to-date diabetes clinic results, to help you manage your condition more effectively.
If there is a particular problem identified with your diabetes care that we cannot help you within the practice, then we will refer you to a specialist service.
