NHS England and NHS Improvement have commissioned a dedicated diabetes helpline to support patients living with diabetes during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Advisers will be able to provide clinical guidance on a range of topics, including:
The helpline is staffed by diabetes-trained healthcare professionals and is designed to provide clinical advice for adult, insulin-treated people with diabetes who require immediate clinical advice and are unable to access routine care as a result of Covid-19. The service is not a replacement for the routine care patients would normally receive from their usual care team.
The helpline can be accessed Monday to Friday from 9am-6pm, via the Diabetes UK’s support line.
