The Earlswood Centre is a 10-15 minute walk from East Surrey Hospital. Parking is provided, but only a limited number of spaces are available.
Bus route: 430/435 to Royal Earlswood Park.
Antenatal patients and children are still be seen in specialist clinics at East Surrey Hospital.
Diabetes clinics are also be held at Horsham, Crawley, Oxted and Caterham Dene Hospitals.
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.
Patients can call our specialist diabetes nurses for advice on 01737 231788. This is an answer phone service and the nurses will call back.
Patients with Type 1 diabetes who struggle to regulate their insulin injections are offered an insulin pump. Our specialist diabetes nurses give patient education and support in their clinics. We currently have 180 patients within the Trust area who use insulin-pumps.
