The Diabetes template can be accessed through the Auto-Consultation option, by selecting the orange 'd' icon in the demographics box or by searching in the bottom left-hand corner of SystmOne. 


The home page will give you access to the different pages of the template (diagnosis, review etc), as well as a summary of relevant medical history for the patient. Please see our Home Tab Support Article for more information.


If the patient is presenting with possible symptoms of Diabetes you can access the template from the Auto consultations drop down > hover over Ardens conditions C-D > select the Diabetes option. The home page has an option on the left for diagnosis. This will guide you through recording relevant tests and criteria for diagnosis. 

Review and Care plan

If the patient is coming in for their Diabetes review you can access the template from under the patients demographic box using the orange 'd' icon. This will open the template up and select Review on the left or at the top of the template. You can work through the review accessing scoring tools, correct coding for contract requirements, formularies and drug monitoring, patient leaflets and care plans. Remember that the care plan will only auto-populate with the information you have just entered if you click 'OK' to the template first - then re-open to click on the care plan option which will open in Word. 

Hypos & Hypers, and Remission 

Page 5 at the top of the template has relevant information for recording hypoglycaemic and hyperglycaemic events. Page 8 has relevant information and coding guidance for patients in remission. 

You also have the referral and resources pages available on the template for any further referrals and patient self help information.
