General diabetes clinics

Our diabetes consultants see patients with Type 1 diabetes, including patients using insulin pumps, and also patients with Type 2 diabetes, including patients requiring insulin initiation and with more complex management problems. Many patients with uncomplicated Type 2 diabetes can be managed in primary care by their GP.

We treat all adult patients within the Trust’s geographical area, however, children, aged under 16 years, with diabetes are treated by the paediatric team. Our diabetes consultants hold joint adolescent clinics with the paediatric consultants for diabetic patients aged 16-19 years old.

Our three consultants in diabetes are also endocrinologists.

They are currently involved in a national study into type 2 diabetes, entitled PRIBA (Predicting Response to Incretin-based Agents) – an observational study to evaluate factors that may help predict patients’ response to some of the new diabetes medication, when these are used as part of normal diabetes treatment.
