You & Type 2 Diabetes
Our practice is changing the way we support people with Type 2 Diabetes. We hope that this will give you more information about your condition and more of an opportunity to discuss the things that are important to you.
The new service is called You & Type 2.
We will soon be inviting you to attend two appointments and we will share supporting information with you between those appointments.
The first appointment is your Annual Checks Appointment.
In this appointment we will complete all the checks that tell us how things are going with you, including blood and urine tests, as well as foot and blood pressure checks. This appointment will be with the healthcare assistant.
After your Annual Checks appointment, we will share information, including your test results, with you. We hope that this will give you time to think about them before your second appointment. Your results will be shared with you by post or, where indicated, by email. We encourage you to think about the things that matter most to you when it comes to managing your diabetes.
After you have seen your results we will invite you to a second appointment known as your Care and Support Planning Appointment.
This appointment will be different to appointments you have had previously with your Doctor or Nurse. You will have an opportunity to review your progress and to discuss the things that are most important to you. You will also make a plan with your Doctor or Nurse for managing your diabetes over the next year.
Following your appointment, your Doctor or Nurse will give you a copy of the plan you make.
We hope you will find this new support makes things just that bit easier, and we look forward to seeing you at your first appointment.
