COVID-19 service update: 

Urgent patient care is currently being offered. Support may be face to face or at home but where possible remote advice will be given.

The structured education programme has been suspended and new patients will be placed on a waiting list until the full service resumes.


We are a short term specialist service for patients who are currently taking the maximum dose of oral medication (maximum oral triple therapy) to control their Type 2 diabetes. Usually this is patients with a HBA1C (the blood marker used for diabetes) of over 75 who require specialist intervention from diabetes specialist nurses, dietitians and GPs with a specialist interest in diabetes. 


Who's it for?

Our service is only for people who have Type 2 diabetes.

  • GPs or hospitals
  • Patients themselves
