Diabetes Clinics 

We provide a dedicated diabetes clinic for patients registered at our practice. These clinics are done by our in-house GPs and Healthcare Assistants (HCA). 

This consists of the following: 

  • Diabetes medication review with GP 
  • Diabetes blood and urine tests 
  • Diabetes foot checks 
  • Diabetic eye screening referral 
  • Referral to National diabetes prevention programme (NDPP) 
  • Advice on pre-diabetes health and lifestyle 
  • Referral to Diabetes education programme. 

National Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP): 

The Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme identifies people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and refers them onto a nine-month, evidence-based lifestyle change programme. It is a joint service from NHS England and NHS Improvement and Diabetes UK. 

The Healthier You programme is available both as a face-to-face group service and as a digital service. When referred into the programme, people are free to choose between the two. 

People on the face-to-face group service receive personalised support to manage their weight, eat more healthily and be more physically active – which together have been proven to reduce a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes. 

The digital service offers similar support but with digital tools such as wearable technologies that monitor levels of exercise, apps where users can access health coaches, online peer support groups and the ability to set and monitor goals electronically. 

Research shows the Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme has reduced new diagnoses of type 2 diabetes in England, saving thousands of people from the potentially serious consequences of the condition. It cuts the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by more than a third for people completing the programme.
