Diabetes Clinic

The CNWL Diabetes Service in Hillingdon now provides a single point of access to adult diabetes services throughout Hillingdon for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients. They have close links with Hillingdon Hospital as well as GP services. Community Diabetes Clinics are run at Hesa in Hayes, Oak Farm clinic (Long Lane), West Mead Clinic in South Ruislip and Northwood Health Centre in Northwood and Eastcote HC.. For patients who are house bound and have issues with their diabetes, the GP can refer and the team will see them in their own home.
The service also offers DESMOND (Diabetes Education and Self-Monitoring for Ongoing and New Diabetes) this is a one day course for all newly diagnosed people with Type 2 diabetes (referral is made through your GP), we also offer mini education sessions for non-English speakers.
All people with diabetes (over the age of 12) must have an annual retinal screening which is not managed by the Diabetes Service but your GP can ensure you are referred, if you do not get your screening please ask your GP to chase up.
