All referrals to the Specialist Diabetes service should be send in the usual way to Luton & Dunstable Hospital. Referrals will then be triaged by the consultant. New patients seen in a Community Clinic will be assessed and then either returned to their practices with a plan or be sent on to the Hospital Clinic if they require more complex specialist care than that provided in community.
