Global IT Outages

Due to global IT outages we are unable to access any medical records. Therefore, we are only able to provide immediate and necessary treatment until the issues are resolved. North East London ICB is working to find a resolution as soon as possible and we will keep this site updated. Thank you for your patience and understanding

Diabetes Services

There are a number of services that can help you when it comes to looking after yourself if you have diabetes.

Routine care

The majority of people with diabetes are looked after by the Practice Diabetes Team.

We like to see all people with diabetes twice a year, once during their annual health check and again 6 months later.

You will receive an invite for both the annual health check and normally a 6 month review. Both of the appointments will be with a Nurse and you will need to have a blood test before each appointment.

There are times when you will need to be seen more often than twice a year, 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 they may be with either 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 Healthcare Professionals. Please check with your Practice for clinic times.

Specialist care

If there is a particular problem identified with your diabetes care that we cannot help you with within the Practice, then we will refer you to a specialist service.
