NHS Diabetes Advice helpline
NHS England and NHS Improvement have launched a new helpline in response to disruption to normal diabetes services due to the COVID-19 pandemic and response.
The service is for adults living with diabetes who use insulin to manage their condition and require immediate clinical advice.
Whether you or a member of your household have caught the virus, or routine care has been disrupted, the helpline is available for immediate clinical advice to help you understand how to effectively manage their diabetes.
You can access NHS Diabetes Advice via Diabetes UK’s support line on 0345 123 2399 Monday-Friday from 9am-6pm.
Stanley Health Centre is taking part in an important national project about diabetes care and treatment in the NHS. The project is called National Diabetes Audit (NDA)
To take part, we will share information about your diabetes care and treatment with the NDA. The type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security.
For further information about how your information is used please see the National Diabetes Audit, patient leaflet
Taking part in the NDA shows that our practice is committed to improving care for people with diabetes.
If you do not want your information to be used, please inform us. This will not affect your care.
