Diabetes Service

The Community Diabetes service consists of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) of Diabetes Specialist Consultant, Nurses, Dietitians, Podiatrist and a Clinical Psychologist, delivering specialist clinics for adults over 25 years old across various locations in Surrey Downs. Adults with diabetes, aged between 17 and 25 years, are followed-up in Epsom Hospital. 

Individuals with diabetes are referred by their GP or by other healthcare practitioners to the most appropriate specialist service based on their individual needs and expertise of the service, which are set out in the “Care Model” of the service. 

The Community Diabetes service work closely with the diabetes team at Epsom Hospital to allow smooth transition of patient care from and into the hospital specialist service, as and when clinically indicated. 

The team are supported by an administrative team who help manage incoming referrals, emails and telephone messages which are passed onto the Clinician of the Day. They are operational between 08:00-16:00 Monday-Friday.
