Diabetes - In-Patient Care

If you do find that you have to come into the QEH, we have a dedicated specialist inpatient service. We are here to ensure you have a safe stay and where possible you remain in control of your diabetes.

Whilst an inpatient you should:

  •  Have someone check your feet, this includes removing any bandages and socks.
  •  Be asked to complete a self-administration form
  •  Be able to request a referral to the diabetes specialist inpatient team, if you feel this is required

If everything is going well in relation to your diabetes a referral the specialist diabetes team is not always required.

Our ward staff have received training within diabetes, but please be patient with them and remember they are not specialists.

You may find the following resources helpful during your stay:
