If you see a patient who you
and you are wanting to refer them – please note that all patients with diagnosed diabetes (type 1 and type 2) will automatically be picked up by the local DESP from 6-monthly extracts from all GP practice systems. You do not need to make a referral, any referrals received will be returned.
If you are still unsure (e.g. if the patient is not registered with a local GP practice) and would like further guidance as to whether a referral is required or not, please contact Devon DESP on 01392 241000
