Venue: GP Surgery 2

Today I sat with the practice nurse in the diabetic clinic. I learnt about the regular checkups that patients must attend in order to mange and control their diabetes including eye checks and foot checks. I also watched her break the diagnosis to a patient that they now have diabetes. I found it really concerning that in both of my few day placements at GP surgeries one of the consultations I observed was a person being told that they were diabetic. This expresses how major a problem diabetes is as well as the scale of people it affects.
