Specialist Diabetes Team – South Manchester

The specialist diabetes team runs a wide range of nurse-led clinics offering treatment and support in the community for patients with diabetes.

We are a multi-disciplinary team, meaning we work closely with a range of professionals who specialise in different aspects of diabetes care.

Patients with diabetes aged over 18.

Our Specialist clinics for people with diabetes include: Antenatal clinic, Transition clinic for young people transferring to adult care, High risk foot clinic, Erectile dysfunction clinic, and Insulin Pump clinics. We work closely with community services including, District Nurses, Learning Disability Teams, Neighbourhood Teams and Residential / Nursing Homes. If necessary, we can arrange community visits for patients in their own homes, nursing homes or residential care.

Education is a fundamental part of the service and the team are trained in nationally recognised courses such as DAFNE and X-PERT.
