Diabetes Annual Review
You can expect a yearly review of your diabetes with a Health Care from your GP surgery.
They will monitor the 15 health checks as recommended by Diabetes UK https://www.diabetes.org.uk/guide-to-diabetes/managing-your-diabetes/15-healthcare-essentials. . This is to reduce the chance of diabetes complications https://www.diabetes.org.uk/guide-to-diabetes/complications. Prior to this check you will receive a request to attend for a blood test.
It’s important that you attend your annual diabetes review appointment even if you have been to other diabetes appointments. If you do not receive an appointment for a yearly check, please contact the administration team at your surgery
