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 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.
