Diabetes Community Clinic - Fylde Coast

Primary Care, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals and Lancashire and South Cumbria Foundation Trust staff have come together to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for diabetes patients to speak to a range of health professionals to get advice about how to manage their diabetes.

Referrals are made for diabetes patients to access the community clinic who can then choose which health professionals they would like to speak to, including a diabetes consultant, diabetes nurse, GP with special interest, dietitian and podiatrist.

This joined up approach means that patients can get help and advice quicker and are not signposted to a number of different services over time.
