About our diabetes service
The diabetes team provides a comprehensive service for people with diabetes. Our multidisciplinary service is provided by a team of four consultants, six specialist nurses, a specialist podiatrist and a specialist dietician. We also supervise 2 specialist trainees from North central London Rotation
The outpatient service is based in clinic 8 and helps people with type 1Diabetes to manage their condition by providing structured education and pump service in addition to conventional treatment. We also support people with Type 2 Diabetes complicated by kidney impairment and foot disease.
The antenatal service for pregnant women with diabetes is run in conjunction with our obstetric colleagues. The outpatient service is delivered in the Obstetrics Clinics on Wednesdays apart from round the clock support to patients by diabetes midwives.
In addition, daily support to the in-patient teams is provided by our dedicated Nursing team with consultants’ input where needed.
Our dedicated ward is on T7 but we also provide in-patient support to our colleagues on other wards.

How to prepare for your visit
You may be asked to attend for a blood test prior to your appointment with the doctor, it is important that you have this blood test carried out so the results are ready on the day of your appointment.
It is very important that you bring a list of medications you are taking with you each time you attend.
