Find Out More About Portsmouth NHS Trust's Diabetes Service
|Author: Portsmouth NHS Trust||Published: 13th October 2011 17:57|
Portsmouth NHS Trust's Diabetes services are nationally recognised as some of the best in the country.
Patients with diabetes are twice as likely to be admitted to hospital. They have a length of stay twice that of non-diabetic patients and higher complications rates.
At the next public constituency meetings for Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust's Council of Governors, a consultant from the Diabetes department will be giving a presentation on Diabetes and the Trust's Diabetes services.
Constituency meetings are held twice a year; to give Trust members and members of the public an opportunity to share their opinions of the hospital with Trust Governors and to enjoy an interesting presentation from one of our clinicians. All are welcome.
Peter Mellor, Company Secretary, said: "Public constituency meetings are a very useful tool for the Trust to find out from our members and the public what they think needs to be changed or developed. We continually strive to improve the services that we provide and rely on people telling us what could, and should, be done better. I hope that people will attend our meetings and take the opportunity to ask questions of one of our lead diabetes consultants."
The dates for the next meetings are:
1 November 2011 from 2.30pm to 4.30pm
