Translators and interpreters
Interpreters can be arranged for all appointments. Please contact the Children's Diabetes Team with details about which language is required and whether a male or female interpreter is preferred.
First appointment/what to bring
Appointments at the Children's Diabetes Clinic last for 30 minutes and a Children's Diabetes Doctor, Nurse and Dietitian will all be present.
On arrival at clinic, each child or young person is weighed, has their height recorded and an HbA1c is measured. The HbA1C test is completed by your doctor
or nurse and it helps to
show how well the blood glucose levels
are being controlled
month after month.
It is really important to bring blood glucose meters to clinic, including the meter that may usually be kept at school. The information can be downloaded on to the computer in the clinic room and this can inform decisions about any treatment changes that may be necessary.
You may also have been asked to bring a food diary or carbohydrate counting records too.
It is really important to let us know if you cannot attend an appointment, this will allow us to give the appointment to another child and we can rearrange your appointment. Please contact the Children's Diabetes Team. Tel. 01274 365219 if you need to cancel your appointment. Thank you.
There is no need to routinely bring your insulin pens to clinic. However, please bring any other type of medication that your child has been prescribed or any supplement s/ herbal remedies that your child takes.
