Management of adults with diabetes undergoing surgery and elective procedures: improving standards

Joint British Diabetes Societies for Inpatient Care

Recent evidence has shown that pre-operative recognition of diabetes and good communication between the clinical teams at all stages of the patient pathway help to minimise the potential for errors, and improve glycaemic control. The stages of the patient journey start in primary care and end when the patient goes home.

This Guidelines summary provides recommendations for primary care, and includes a GP letter with recommendations for referral of patients for surgery.
