Services Database Community Pharmacy Diabetes Plus Service (Herts Valley CCG Area)

Service ID

241380

Description

This service allows local pharmacies in Hertfordshire to offer an initial MUR-type consultation where the patient is supported with their diabetes medicines and self-management along with an NMS-type follow-up consultation looking at whether the recommendations made were implemented by the patient.

Patients identified as at-risk of developing diabetes related complications will receive advice on reducing their future risk of cardiovascular disease by addressing their modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease (such as, excess weight, dietary salt of alcohol), supporting a strategy of self-management.

Patients will be directed to local services as part of the consultation to support them in managing their diabetes well where they may need further help and support.
