The Diabetes Centre
Both sites have active Diabetes Centres. The emphasis is on a multidisciplinary approach to diabetes and the SpR has daily liaison with the specialist nurses, dieticians, podiatrists and psychologists.
There are regular interdepartmental meetings, where difficulties in patient management are discussed by the whole team. The SpR is encouraged to spend time with the Community Diabetes Advisory Group to understand the interaction between primary and secondary care in diabetes.
