can i ask how to other units manage their pre-conceptual clinic for those with type 2 and type 2 diabetes? who runs the clinic? who sees the women and how often are they seen and what format does it take?

Hi Suzannah

I manage our preconception care clinic and then refer on to others as required.  I see women every month if their control is poor or every 2-3 months once they have an optimal HbA1c. Some women will only want one appointment and obviously the choice is theirs.

Women are seen every 4 -6 months by the consultant physician alongside myself as well.

Hope this helps

In our clinic we see T1 and T2 and their appointments are dependent on control as above.
