How can I get referred into the Community Diabetes services?

A referral form is accepted from a health care professional (e.g. GP, Practice Nurse/District Nurse), which clearly identifies the reason you are being referred.

If you feel you would benefit from the service and would like to know more, ask your GP or Practice Nurse/Specialist Nurse to refer you.
