Description of the Diabetes service
We provide a nurse led comprehensive service for patients with type 2 diabetes supporting patients to achieve glycaemic control.
This includes giving high quality information and advice for newly diagnosed patients with a DESMOND programme, insulin initiation and titration and ongoing review.
We also provide help and support for primary care health care professionals caring for diabetic patients.
We work collaboratively with the Diabetes Team at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Hospitals NHS Trust and our Bridgewater Podiatry team.
