Diabetes - Community Services

This includes giving high quality information and advice for newly diagnosed patients with a DESMOND programme, insulin initiation and titration and ongoing review.

We also provide help and support for primary care health care professionals caring for diabetic patients.

We work collaboratively with the Diabetic Medicine Team and our Podiatry team.
