Diabetes Annual Reviews

We are changing the way diabetes annual reviews are carried out

Have you heard about Care Planning?

Care planning gives you the opportunity to have more information and be more involved in your health care.

So what does this mean for me?

Your annual review will happen over two separate appointments.

At the first appointment:

  • You will be asked to attend the surgery to have all your checks and measurements done.
  • Shortly after this your test results will be sent to you. This will give you the chance to be able to think about what the results mean to you and what you might like to discuss at your care planning appointment.

At the second appointment:

  •  You will be able to discuss your results and talk about what is important to you.
  • By the end of the appointment you will have a plan that has been agreed jointly.

Patient Notice

All organisations that provide NHS services, or publicly funded adult social care, must have fully implemented and conformed to the Accessible Information Standard (1605) by 31st July 2016.

This means we would like to record your preferred method of contact so that you can receive your health information in a format you can understand.

For most of us the preferred method of contact is our home telephone number or mobile phone number but if you are visually impaired or hard of hearing you may prefer another option.

If you would prefer us to contact you in another way, please inform Reception so your records can be updated.
