Diabetes 

Your safety during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak is our priority. We have therefore cancelled our pre-clinic tests in the Diabetes and Endocronology Department.

We will contact you by telephone to arrange your blood test, if we feel the benefit will outweigh the risk of you travelling to hospital.

We are very grateful for your patience and understanding at this time and we hope you and your loved ones stay safe.

Our department consists of a multidisciplinary team of consultants, specialist registrars, associate specialists, clinical nurse specialists, dieticians and podiatrists.  We work together closely to support and improve the health of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes via education, training, research and through other services that we provide. Our team works in close collaboration with ophthalmologists, vascular surgeons, endocrine surgeons, obstetricians and paediatricians. In addition to a large outpatient service, the department also provides a daily consultation service for inpatients with diabetes.

The diabetes team at UCLH are also working in partnership with Camden and Islington Clinical Care Groups, GPs and the Royal Free diabetes team to support the care of patients with diabetes in the community.

Conditions treated

We provide DAFNE education for people with type 1 diabetes.  DESMOND courses for type 2 diabetes are provided by the community teams. We care for patients with:

  • Newly diagnosed type 1 and type 2 diabetes
  • Continuous glucose monitoring
  • Foot problems
  • Insulin pumps
  • Preconception – planning for pregnancy
  • Diabetes in pregnancy – pre-existing or gestational
  • Lipid clinics

Attending the diabetes clinic

The diabetes clinics are held in Clinic K.  On arrival to clinic, we will first check your blood pressure and weight.  After this you can have your blood test.  The results of the HbA1c will be analysed at that time and the result will be back for you to discuss during your clinic appointment.
