The diabetes specialist nurses and diabetes specialist dietitians from the Hackney Diabetes Team visit our practice to conduct diabetes clinics.
The diabetes specialist nurse sees patients to discuss management of their diabetes; for assessment of blood glucose control; review of medication; problem-solving; and other education regarding diabetes.
The diabetes specialist dietitian sees patients to discuss dietary aspects of diabetes management; for dietary review when diabetes medication is changed, for example initiation of insulin therapy; and for weight management; or to discuss other aspects of diet and diabetes.

Physiotherapists provide patients with expert diagnosis and treatment for musculoskeletal conditions and can prevent the need for referral to hospital. These physiotherapists can free up GP time by arranging swift access to a specialist where necessary and offer direct treatments. Some physiotherapists who hold advanced level training (advanced care practitioners) can manage complex conditions, arrange tests such as scans, diagnose problems, and work out a management and treatment plan such as joint injections that would previously have been organised by a GP.

Social prescribing involves helping patients to improve their health, wellbeing and welfare by connecting them to community services which might be run by the council or a local charity. Social prescribers can take the time to talk about what matters to patients and support them to find suitable activities that are a better alternative to medication. They connect people to community groups and services for practical and emotional support.
