Patients diagnosed with diabetes will often need to make changes to their lifestyle, diet and personal care and we can help a patient adapt to a new way of life.
Diabetic patients often need to control the amounts of carbohydrates in their diet to help regulate their blood sugar. We offer support and advice in choosing appropriate food choices.
If anti-diabetic drugs are required to lower glucose levels in a patient’s blood, our nursing staff can administer the medications as necessary.
Gastroenterology is the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the digestive system. We work alongside our gastroenterology specialists to support patients with many types of digestive disease and offer rehabilitation services.
Often patients diagnosed with gastroenterology conditions are required to make lifestyle changes and take medicines and our staff offer support and help administering the medications as required. We offer the opportunity to rest and be cared for following gastroenterology surgery too.
Rheumatology is the investigation, diagnosis and management of patients with arthritis (rheumatoid and osteoarthritis) and other musculoskeletal conditions (ankylosing spondylitis).
We work with our rheumatology consultant to diagnose and help manage patients with rheumatology conditions. We offer advice and education on the condition, how to function better, manage the pain and exercise. We aim to help rheumatology patients to carry out daily activities themselves and enjoy leisure activities leading to an improved quality of life.
