The diabetes team at Priory Medical Group includes a variety of professionals to ensure you get the best care. Those delivering your diabetes care are Nurses, Heath Care Assistants (HCA's), GPs, Physicians Associates (PA's) and Diabetes Pharmacists.

Pre-diabetes Review

Invites will be sent out for annual blood tests around the time of your birthday month - this will allow you get your blood test taken at the York Phlebotomy Centre at the community drop-in blood taking clinic run by York Hospital but now based at the Community Stadium (address and details on the York Hospital website)

If any discussion is needed following your blood test, a clinician may contact you to discuss this or request that you submit an appointment request online.

The Diabetes UK website has plenty of advice with regards to preventing diabetes and general lifestyle tips.

Annual Diabetes Review

Priory Medical Groups annual reviews ensure that you get all aspects of diabetic care in two simple appointments:

  • The first appointment is with a HCA, you will be invited to book into yourself via an SMS link message when it is your turn to be reviewed (this may feel out of sync with your birthday month whilst we work on clearing some of the backlog work from the pandemic). This will allow you to pick a time slot to suit your own schedule. If we do not hold a mobile number for you we will contact you by other means (telephone call or letter).
    • This HCA check updates your observations such as blood pressure, pulse and weight. They will also take appropriate blood tests and undertake your diabetic foot check. The HCA will then book a follow up appointment for you with one of our diabetes clinicians - usually the following week (this can vary slightly).
  • The second appointment is a review of all of your diabetes checks, blood tests results and medications (if you are on these). This can be carried out remotely via phone or text and will dependent on each patient. This review is delivered by our highly trained diabetes nurses or pharmacists.

There is more information and advice about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes on the Diabetes UK website.
