Diabetes annual review process explained:
People with diabetes need a review at least annually to help them in managing this condition. The process is explained below:
The review with the GP is made of 3 steps
Step 1 Completion of an E-consult template for diabetes
(https://burneystreetpractice.webgp.com/reviews or this can be accessed via the main Burney Street Practice web site, then E-consult, click “get started”, then far right bottom of the screen is a section called “”need to complete a review?” click on this and “diabetes” option appears. Before starting your E-Consult make sure you have done your blood pressure, and your weight. If you are not able to do these measurements just say “no” and we will pick this up in stage 2.
Step 2 You will receive an email back inviting you to come in for a blood test and foot check at one appointment.
This is available Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays 09:00 – 10:30 at Wallace Health Centre. You will then call the practice on 0208 858 0631 for this appointment. If you have not been able to take your own blood pressure at home or your weight, our email to you will include asking you to come for your appointment 10 minutes earlier so you can use the blood pressure/weight machine in our waiting room.
Step 3 Once your bloods and foot check is done your name will be put onto a GP E-consult list (usually around 2 weeks later) where a GP will review all your results and contact you either by E-consult, or by telephone. This will include your most recent results and the trend. This is not a face to face appointment and the time of the contact from the GP is also not fixed but will happen that day. If you do have anything you specifically want to discuss about your diabetes you should include it in your E-consult diabetes review template.
As with all appointments, please do not come with other people unless they are needed to help you with mobility. If you are being shielded and we have invited you for a review please put this in your E-consult diabetes review template.
