We are changing the way we organise diabetes care at Cults Medical Group. This will ensure that all Diabetes Healthcare Essentials* are addressed annually which leads to better outcomes for patients.
1. You will be offered a Diabetes Annual Checks appointment around the time of your birthday. Please bring a first morning urine sample with you and our Healthcare Assistant will process this along with your blood tests, blood pressure, weight and foot screening.
2. The results will be collated by one of our Diabetes GPs. You will receive a booklet detailing your results, together with a form to aid care planning and a recommendation letter detailing next steps for action or discussion.
3. The recommendation letter will detail the best member of our healthcare team for you to organise a Care Planning Appointment. This may be with a pharmacist, practice nurse or GP and could be by telephone or face to face. Decisions about treatment, support and when more tests are due will be agreed at this appointment.
