Rhondda Cynon Taf LHB
Given the high rates of the condition in Rhondda Cynon Taf, diabetes is a priority area for improving patient care. Patients living in the two Rhondda Valleys now have the option of going to a diabetes review clinic run by an LHB-salaried GP and nurse specialists at Llwynypia Hospital.
Nurses employed by the LHB have also advised some practices on how to run their own clinics for patients with diabetes.
Some service shifts have already occurred between secondary and primary care and further shifts are likely. These schemes have been actively encouraged and supported by the consultant diabetologists employed by the Pontypridd and Rhondda NHS Trust, as part of their overall vision to provide more community-based (as opposed to hospital-based) diabetes care.
