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.

doctor_examining_earThe doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.

To check if you are eligible to register with us, please click on the link below and enter your postcode:-

https://www.primarycare.nhs.uk/publicfn/catchment.aspx?oc=A83055&h=600&w=800&if=0 

When you come to register with the Practice you will be asked to produce two forms of identification to confirm your ID, personal details and home address i.e. drivers licence or passport and also utility bill dated within the last 3 months as proof of address. 

When new patients join the Practice, we like to meet them. To help us give full medical care, we ask you to fill in a health questionnaire before you come for your appointment as it may take some time for us to receive your medical record. At the appointment the practice nurse will carry out brief medical checks and discuss any medications you take, or any health problems you may have.  If you have medication which is on a repeat prescription, you will also need an appointment with the doctor so that this can be arranged.  A copy of your repeat medication from your previous doctor's practice would be helpful.  Please contact reception for further information.

When you attend for your new patient check with the nurse, you can collect the details for online access from reception.  This will enable you to order repeat medication, book and cancel appointments and view medical information online for your convenience.
