Patient survey: Diabetes education for people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes

Dedicated diabetes education sessions happen all across the country, however attendance is low.  We would like to understand why this is, and what steps we can make to improve the uptake.  Current uptake nationally is approximately 7% for people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.   We know diabetes education is one of two diabetes indicators Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) are measured on and this is reported in the CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework. 

We are inviting patients to complete a survey about diabetes education to provide invaluable experience and insight into what the incentives and challenges are as well as considering different options for delivery of the education.  

We are inviting people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes to complete this survey. To complete, please click on link below:

The survey is voluntary and anonymous.  It should take a few minutes to complete and the survey will close on Monday 10th September 2018.

Paper copy surveys are available.  Should people with diabetes wish to talk to someone about this survey please contact NHS Northern England Diabetes Clinical Network team by email england.northerndiabetes@nhs.net or telephone number Tel: 0113 825 3307.

Travel Adviceglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. 

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
