Diabetes & Prevention

National Diabetes Audit

Diabetes is a serious illness that requires regular follow-up. We can provide most of this care within the practice, but we also use external services provided by outside agencies where appropriate.

The nursing team will perform your annual check and review your recent blood test, management of co-existing diseases that impact upon diabetes and referral for insulin support where needed.

There is lots of helpful information at the Diabetes UK website

National NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme offers free support to help you reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

The menu opposite contains PDF links to the patient leaflet and the self referral form. 

National Diabetes Audit

At Rowden Surgery we take part in the National Diabetes Audit (NDA). The NDA checks to see whether people with diabetes are getting good care. There are very strict rules about how your information is used and stored.

There is a patient information leaflet available here: Diabetes Audit Leaflet and for more detailed information you can look at the main website here: National Diabetes Audit.

If you do not wish to be included in the audit please let the surgery know.

Diabetes annual reviews

Your annual review will consist of an initial appointment in the LTC (Long Term Condition) Clinic followed by either a telephone or a face-to-face review with our Diabetic nurse.

You will be invited via text message or letter to book an appointment in the "HCA LTC clinic"

Please let us know your mobile number in order to receive the text invitations.
