Dedicated helpline to support diabetes care
A dedicated hotline has been set up by healthcare partners to help people with diabetes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Designed for patients who need urgent clinical advice, it is hoped that the hotline will give reassurance to patients who are concerned about their diabetic health during COVID-19, and also ultimately help prevent admission to hospital.
The patient hotline number is 01865 857357, and is available seven days a week from 8am until 4pm. Patients can also email firstname.lastname@example.org If patients have a query out of hours, they can call 0300 3047777.
