Diabetes is managed by a dedicated team. Patients will receive an full annual check. They will be invited in to see a nurse first who will take blood and perform a physical examination, and then contacted by our practice nurse depending on what further treatment is needed.
If patients have more than one long term condition, we will provide a longer appointment so that wherever possible everything can be reviewed with one visit to the surgery.
In addition you will be invited to an annual retinal screening appointment, these clinics are run by staff from the Royal United Hospital and take place in either Frome Medical Centre or at Frome Community Hospital.
Frome Medical Practice also offers a Digital Diabetes Prevention Programme. For more information on this service click here
