Diabetes Annual Review

The Diabetes Annual Review is a service for those diabetic patients to have a annual free check up. Once a patient has been diagnosed with diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, they automatically go onto the recall system for a Diabetic Annual Review.

The assessment is usually done by a nurse trained in Diabetic Annual Reviews.

The purpose of this review is to check on the management of the patient’s diabetes. Out of this comes goal setting, this  is done in partnership with the patient. Whanau are always welcomed to accompany the patient and assist in setting goals with the patient.

The package does not stop there.

  • The nurse works in a dedicated team that provides ongoing care and support for the patient and whanau. This can be in the form of home/workplace visit or a drop in to the clinic to see the nurse.
  • The nurse will monitor the patient and keep in touch with their GP or whomever to ensure good care is being delivered.
