Diabetes Cycle of Care
In October 2015, the Diabetes Cycle of Care (CoC) was introduced nationally by the HSE. GPs can choose to take part in this CoC. People with a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes who have a Medical Card or GP Visit Card are eligible to be managed as part of the CoC by their GP. Once registered with the Primary Care Reimbursement Service (PCRS) people with Type 2 diabetes receive two visits a year, an Annual Review Consultation and a Second Consultation .These should be organised at approximately 6 monthly intervals. Work is ongoing to electronically forward data from each review to the PCRS on an annual basis.
