The big new thing in here is stating for, I think, the first time in NICE guidance, that Type 2 Diabetes can be diagnosed from 2 HbA1C > 6.5% (48), as well as the traditional methods.

The rest is based on previous or existing guidance about dietary advice / assessing barriers to change etc, so worth a read if you want a quick reminder.

The following websites have good concise patient info on healthy lifestyles:

"Work as GP locum provides me both flexibility and autonomy together with great job satisfaction. However, there are some complexities one needs to address in starting out and doing everything right.

I've generally found answers to any issues I've had on the NASGP website – an excellent repository of very relevant information. The blog and magazines alone are almost worth the small costs of membership. The fact that NASGP is run by motivated fellow GPs gives me confidence in their guidance and advice.

LocumDeck makes my running things as a self-employed GP almost effortless - I don't think I would want to work without it. Invoicing is streamlined and the website is very user-friendly. After a busy week at work, the last thing you want is to spend hours on business admin. LocumDeck is a real timesaver.
