(as the patient),

1) What is good about this clinic?

I’ve been coming since 2004, friendly staff, know my name and ask how I am. Referral – from my doctor to this clinic

Waiting time (because of nurses) but prepared to wait because the clinic is good.

I have good relationship with my diabetic nurse and I can contact her via e-mail Monday – Friday. During weekend I will be contacting the switchboard for advice

Sometimes there can be a delay in making the call or replying to the e-mail.

5) What sort of contact would you prefer in between visits?

I would prefer face to face contact if I am not sure so I can be shown what to do if needed.
