Community and mental health services for Southampton, Portsmouth and parts of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.


Who are we?

We provide diabetes specialist advice, guidance, support and education to adults with diabetes, their carers and health care professionals within Southampton City. Most adult diabetes care is managed within in GP surgeries. However, if specialist support is required a healthcare professional referral is required. This maybe for group education, an appointment within the GP surgery to see the diabetes specialist nurse or to be seen in the Diabetes Centre by one or all of the multidisciplinary team (Consultant, diabetes specialist nurse, dietitian).
