Referral form for Diabetes Education delivered by Hackney Diabetes Centre – now available on EMIS!

There is now a new diabetes education referral form for EMIS (please view within downloads section).

You can find it on EMIS via “document” (within a patient consultation) > “create letter” > Search “RP Hackney Diabetes Centre Referral Form CEG”.

The form should auto populate – leaving it for the clinician and patient to complete their preferences and course selection. We hope it makes the referral process quicker and easier as well as helping to promote the wide range of courses we offer.

Please continue to refer patients. Online sessions are now available for EDDI, and are being developed for other courses. Where there is not yet virtual offer in place, the team is able to signpost patients to online education resources / eLearning courses.
