The Diabetes Cycle of care aims to encourage GPs to provide effective management of people with established diabetes. A cycle of care sets out the minimum requirements a GP should complete for a patient with diabetes. Good management of diabetes includes foot & eye checks as well as regular Blood & Urine tests. 

It involves a patient making an appointment with their doctor for them to start the process.

A TCA enables a doctor to coordinate the preparation of a Team Care Arrangement for a patient who has a chronic or terminal medical condition and also requires ongoing care from a multidisciplinary team of at least three health or care providers.

The Chronic Disease Management Plan enables GPs to manage the health care of patients with chronic or terminal medical conditions.

Eligible patients must be aged 40- 49 years (inclusive) and at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes as determined by the patient filling out a diabetes risk assessment tool. Patients can ask their GP or Reception staff for this form at anytime.
