Integrated Community Diabetes Service

We are the Bury and Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale (HMR) Diabetes Service.

We are a team of community and hospital diabetes staff who work together as one single service, to ensure people's care is joined up. 

Who is the service for?

The service is for adults, aged 18 years and above, who have diabetes and are registered with a GP in Bury or the Rochdale borough.

What we do

We provide the majority of your diabetes care within the local community, depending on your needs and the complexity of your condition, you could be cared for by the Bury and HMR Diabetes Service directly, or even by your GP or practice nurse.

Only people needing the most complex and specialist services will now receive their care at Fairfield General Hospital or Rochdale Infirmary for example pregnant, Active Foot, and Diabetes Pump patients.  Each referral will be triage and allocated to the most appropriate clinic. 

We also provide training and education for GPs and primary care clinicians to support them to effectively manage your condition and reduce the risks of any further complications.

We will also provide you with support to manage your condition through a nationally accredited programme.

How to access the service

You need to be referred to the service via your GP.

The benefits

The service will benefit you in many ways, including:

  • A better experience overall.
