New service for north Essex diabetes patients to be launched
11:17am Friday 25th October 2013 in News
A NEW group has been hired to ensure the 17,000 people living with diabetes in north Essex are treated before they need to go to hospital.
The North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group has awarded the adult diabetes service to the Suffolk GP Federation following a tender.
Patients will now have a single point of contact for making diabetes-related appointments and for getting the information and advice they need.
The new service will also offer more education and monitoring of patients to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid complications and crises which could lead to a hospital stay.
