Home Visits

A request for a home visit should be made before 10.00am. Home visits are made on the basis of clinical need, for patients who are too frail to come to the surgery.

 

Diabetes

Diabetic clinics operate in the surgery 2-3 times a week. The appointments are currently telephone reviews by one of the Practice Nurses. Prior to the appointment you will need to have bloods taken, blood pressure, height and weight and provide a urine sample.

Appointments usually occur 3-12 monthly depending on how stable your condition is.

There are mainly 2 different types on diabetes- Type 1 and Type 2. We are discovering more and more subtypes all of the time in between these two. All people with type 1 require insulin but not everybody with type 2 does.

Those with Type 1 Diabetes will be managed in the hospital by specialist nurses and consultants who will review all aspects of their care and medication.

Those with Type 2 are usually managed by their Practice Nurse in the surgery unless they begin to need insulin in which case their care will be passed over to the hospital.

If you are diagnosed with either Type 2 Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes as well as nurse education in the surgery you will be given the opportunity to attend a more formal education programme. It is beneficial to get some more in depth knowledge about the condition and also an opportunity to meet other people with it.

A healthy balanced diet is key to managing diabetes.

Sugar comes from not only obvious places like sweets, biscuits, buns and drinks but also for carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates are foods such as bread, pasta, rice, potatoes. They should only make up 1/4 to 1/3 of your daily food intake. They should be kept wholemeal where possible
