A Previous Successful Improvement Strategy – Lessons Learnt
  • Seems to be degree of patient apathy to diabetes specialist care
  • GP’s are referring to several tertiary centres to hedge bets on an appointment somewhere
  • Nurse led clinics triage and screen for complications & true contenders, improving the access to those who want to attend
  • Nurse led clinics optimise doctors appointments & can save unnecessary r/vs if all results are available at the first visit
