Our Clinics

Our community clinics, led by consultants, take place on a weekly basis in Clacton, Colchester and Harwich.

Our team is made up of nurse consultants, diabetic specialist nurses, dietitians, community diabetologists, psychologists, podiatrists, a mental health practitioner and administrators.

We aim to educate and support our patients in the management of their diabetes to ensure they continue to live a happy, healthy life.

We will:

  • Work with patients to achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Provide individual diabetes care, adapted to suit each patients’ needs.
  • Offer a variety of different education sessions to patients’ post-diagnosis.
  • Empower those living with diabetes by giving them the confidence to self-manage their condition

Other specialist clinics, such as insulin pump, exercise and insulin, mental health support and Freestyle Libre clinics, take place in a variety of locations on a regular basis.

We also work collaboratively with the local ‘Health in Mind’ service to provide easier access for people living with diabetes to get support with managing their psychological wellbeing. These clinics are currently held at our Colchester clinic location.

When you are invited to make an appointment, the administrator will make you aware of the days and times of each of the clinics and your confirmation letter will include all the details that you will need to find the location.

Please note that these clinics do not offer a walk-in service.
