Camden Community Diabetes Service works with general practitioners to identify individuals who need help to become more effective in self-managing their diabetes.
The service is for adults over the age of 18 who are registered with a Camden general practitioner (GP) who have a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and one or more of the following:
- Require injectable therapies
- Insulin-treated type 2 diabetes patients with poor control
- Problematic hypoglycaemia
- Type 2 group education on new diagnosis and ongoing (DESMOND)
- Step-down care from hospital (renal/diabetes)
The service accepts referrals from GPs and other healthcare professionals. Referrals should be made to the Camden Integrated Care Service via the Camden Clinical Assessment Service: email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 3317 3576.
The service also accepts self-referrals from patients and their carers for type 2 diabetes group education. To make a referral, telephone 0203 758 2036.
The service is available from 09:00-17:00, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays), by appointment only.
Services are delivered at St Pancras Hospital (diabetes hub), and a number of health centres across the London Borough of Camden. Services can also be provided at home if required.
