How to prioritise primary care diabetes services during and post COVID-19 pandemic

Pam Brown, Jane Diggle
As the acute phase of the pandemic recedes, teams face significant backlogs of diabetes reviews. It is important to prioritise care delivery to those who need more urgent reviews until services catch up. This quick guide outlines ways to identify the highest risk groups for COVID-19 and cardiovascular disease, clarify the type of review and consultation required by individual people, and help teams assess their capacity for managing this catch-up workload.

The aim of the “How to” series is to provide readers with a guide to clinical procedures and aspects of diabetes care that are covered in the clinic setting.

Readers are directed to the PDF version of this article.
