Care Planning

patient education

You may have noticed that the way in which your diabetes annual review is carried out has changed and if not you may notice this the next time you visit. Within Bexley we have begun to use the care planning approach in regards to diabetes care, to encourage you as patients to take control of your own diabetes. We have been providing training the GP's and practice nurses, to the new way of carrying out a diabetes annual review. At present not all practices have completed the training but when they do, you will see care planning come to you.

If your practice is using care planning then you may have already received information about the changes that it will bring to your appointments or in some cases you may have already been through the process. However if you have not yet been informed and would like some more information about the use of care planning please feel free to download and read these leaflets.
