Practices in the Northern area who provide core diabetes services do not currently have a structured education programme to refer newly diagnosed patients with Type 2 diabetes too. We are therefore providing the following leaflets from Diabetes UK for your information.
Please click the following links for information:
Understanding Diabetes (Diabetes UK)
Eating well with Diabetes (Diabetes UK)
What care you should receive (Diabetes UK)
If you are a newly diagnosed Diabetic please contact reception and arrange an appointment with the Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant and they will be happy to cover the above main areas of education with you.
