Diabetes service (Hounslow)

The Diabetes Service in Hounslow provides the following support:

  • Diabetes management and specialist support In-GP practice
  • Telephone advice line and email advice service for clinicians
  • Structured education sessions – Nationally accredited X-Pert diabetes Programme for people with Type 2 diabetes and those with Type 2 diabetes using Insulin
  • Domiciliary visits for housebound clients

Wherever possible, patients with diabetes are treated by their own GP with support from a Diabetes Specialist Nurse allocated to the practice. However the specialist team, based at Heart of Hounslow Centre for Health, can provide specialist care for cases that are too complex to be dealt with by a patient's GP practice, but not complex enough to warrant hospital admission.

The teams work with the patient to agree outcomes and then produce a care-management plan, which the patient’s GP practice can then implement 

This approach means that patients with diabetes are receiving specialised care for their condition at the most appropriate level and do not have to make unnecessary trips to acute hospitals.
