Diabetic Clinic

The aim of this clinic is to help diagnose, treat and monitor patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes, with the aim of optimising control of blood sugar levels and preventing or minimising, as much as possible, the damage done by the disease. As with the respiratory clinic, there is a heavy emphasis on patient education and self-management plans.

A doctor and nurse with special interest and training in this field run this clinic. All insulin-dependent diabetics continue to be looked after by hospital-based clinics.
