So I'm doing a research project for college on diabetes support services in the community. Outside of GPs and hospitals there doesn't seem to be much. I'm looking to hear your views on what would be the ideal diabetes care service in the community.
Ideally this would take the form of a clinic under one roof outside of the GP's surgery and hospital i.e. a one stop shop for diabetes care.
What is needed?
And importantly what is not needed?
What is already provided?
My thinking is two diabetic nurses, physio, podiatrist, dietician, cardiac screening service, diabetic screening service, retinopathy screening, counsellor, pharmacist.
Could you comment on any other requirements or if these are not needed.
