If you have any questions or concerns please call 01225 866611 and ask to speak to the Diabetic Nurse (this is likely to be booked into a clinic at a future date). We will aim to answer your queries as soon as possible. Thank you for bearing with us.
The Diabetic Clinic is for all patients over 18 years to attend who have Type I or Type II diabetes. This is both a jointly run clinic (GP and practice nurse) where an annual check is performed and a six monthly (interim) check with one of the practice nurses.
Patients benefit from these clinics as there will be time to discuss diet, lifestyle and general management of their diabetes and any complications. Referrals may be made following attendance at these clinics to the Dietician, Podiatrist, Ophthalmologist or Retinal Screening (which takes place at The Health Centre) or Consultant, or Diabetes Specialist nurse if required.
Patients may access this clinic by making an appointment through the receptionist or by discussion with their GP or practice nurse.
The Bath, Wiltshire and North Somerset Diabetes Service are pleased to announce the launch of the Bath, Wiltshire and North Somerset website. It has been designed to give advice on all aspects of diabetes care, and is based on national guidelines with local information.
