Diabetes and Endocrinology
Diabetes and Endocrinology within the General Medicine Directorate consists of not only wards but also multiple outpatient contacts and a team of Specialist Nurses supporting the Medical Team.
The service is designed to make your experience as stress-free as possible. DSNs provide advice and support to staff looking after you to ensure that your diabetes is managed appropriately and that the admission has minimum impact on your diabetes control.
The DSN team provides great support, with over 10,000 inpatient contacts annually and seven-day cover in place to enhance patient experience. We also liaise with other healthcare providers across the local area to ensure you receive the right care from the right people once you are discharged. Patients from out of the area who attend the hospital for complex surgical procedures are also seen and supported during the peri/post-operative period.
