2). The number of people under the care of the general diabetes services.
3). Is there any mental health input into the general physical service, in the form of a mental health professional who is employed as part of the diabetes multi-disciplinary team, either full or part time.
4). If people under the care of the diabetes service are referred elsewhere outside of the core diabetes multi-disciplinary team for mental health support, then we hope you can make us aware of that.
1). We have 4 general Diabetes clinics per week and in addition, a separate Insulin Pump Clinic and MDT Foot clinic.
2). Number of patients under the care of the general Diabetes service (outpatients only) is 1996.
