Current guidelines recommend testing HbA1c in diabetes every 2-6 months but recent reports have suggested that many GPs are not adhering to these guidelines. Here I present data from an analysis of all requests for HbA1c tests made to the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford for the past 10 years and the relationship between having a test too early or too late with age, sex, previous HbA1c, time of year and GP practice.
This is an internal University of Oxford seminar.
