Healthcare Essentials

Healthcare Essentials

Diabetes UK has issued a document called Healthcare Essentials which lists the checks a person living with Diabetes should have each year.  A Healthcare professional should carry out the checks at your annual review.  The Chelmsford and District Diabetes UK Group circulated a questionnaire at one of its recent meetings to identify whether Diabetics are getting all their checks.  The group found that checks on feet were not carried out in all cases.  The group has recently found out the GP or a Nurse in a GP practice should be carrying out checks on the feet.  Please click on documents below.
