Community Type 2 Diabetes Service

About us

Home icon

There are more than 28,000 people in the county who live with the condition – and each year around 2,200 more get newly diagnosed.

We support primary care clinicians (such as GPs and practice nurses) to care for people with newly diagnosed and longer standing type 2 diabetes. Each year we help around 1,000 people.

Our service covers the whole of Oxfordshire and is staffed by specialist diabetes nurses, who can prescribe medications; specialist dieticians, diabetes educators, and administrative staff.

We are particularly keen to help improve diabetes control and quality of life by encouraging self-management. Diabetes can be controlled and you can lead a full and active life.

We provide 12 free educational courses across the county every month.
