Below information will explain the process of completing your Diabetes Review:
The review with a clinician is made of 3 steps.
Step 1: Completion of an eConsult template for Diabetes
(https://burneystreetpractice.webgp.com/reviews) or this can be accessed via the main Burney Street Practice website, then eConsult, click "get started", then far right bottoms of the screen is a section called "need to complete a review?". Click on this and "diabetes" option appears. Before starting your eConsult make sure you have done your blood pressure and weight. If you are not able to do these measurements just say "no" and we will pick this up in stage 2.
Step 2: You will receive an email back inviting you to come in for a blood test and foot check at one appointment.
You will then call the Practice on 0208 858 0631 for this appointment. If you have not been able to take your own blood pressure at home and your weight, our email to you will include asking you to come in for your appointment 10 minutes earlier so you can use the blood pressure/weight machine in our waiting room.
Step 3: Once your bloods and foot check is done, your name will be added to a Clinicians eConsult list (usually around 2 weeks later) where a Clinician will review all your results and contact you either by eConsult or by telephone
This will include your most recent results and the trend. This is not a face to face appointment and the time of the contact from the Clinician is also not fixed but will happen that day. If you do have anything you specifically want to discuss about your diabetes you should include it in your eConsult Diabetes review template.
As with all appointments, please do not come with other people unless they are needed to help you with mobility.
