A dedicated hotline has been set up by healthcare partners to help people with diabetes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Designed for adult patients who need urgent clinical advice, it is hoped that the hotline will give reassurance to patients who are concerned about their diabetic health during COVID-19, and also ultimately help prevent admission to hospital.
The patient hotline number is 01865 857357, and is available seven days a week from 8.00am until 4.00pm.
Patients can also email firstname.lastname@example.org
If patients have a query out of hours, they can call OUH Switchboard on 0300 304 7777.
Families of children with diabetes should continue to seek support in their usual way.
