What typically happens when you visit outpatients?

At least two weeks prior to your clinic appointment you need to attend the centre for a blood test. This test will assist in the assessment of your diabetes control and may also include your cholesterol level and other measurements that will help with your management.

The number to call for the blood test is 029 2074 2987 (UHW) or 029 2071 5118 (Llandough).

  • On arrival report to the receptionist/clinic co-ordinator.
  • Your notes will be given to the diabetes clinic support nurse who will subsequently call your name and take you to the treatment area.
  • Your blood pressure will be measured.
  • Blood will be taken from your vein for assessment of your long term diabetes control. This may include your cholesterol level and other measurements that help with your management.
  • Your height and weight will be recorded.
  • Your visual acuity (this tests your vision at distance) will be taken if applicable.
  • Your urine will be tested and sent to the laboratory for a protein test if applicable.
  • The diabetes clinic support nurse will show you back to the reception area to await the doctor who will subsequently call you into the consultation room.
  • You may be need to see the diabetes specialist nurse and/or dietitian following the consultation.
