Last review date 03/02/2023

The Diabetes template can be accessed through auto-consultation> ardens CONDITIONS DIABETES and ENDOCRINOLOGY, 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 DIABETES AND ENDOCRINOLOGY > 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 of Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. Links to the NDH and Gestational Diabetes templates can be found in the bottom right corner. 

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. Note - the review is split into two tabs for Assessment and Plan

You can work through the review accessing:

  • Scoring tools 
  • Relevant screening templates (foot, eye, memory etc)
  • Correct coding for contract requirements (QOF codes shown with the red star, local contracts with yellow stars)
  • Formularies and drug monitoring
  • Patient leaflets and care plans

The 9 Key Care processes are also labelled on the assessment page but can be accessed separately on the Key Care tab. 

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 

Page 5 at the top of the template has relevant information for recording hypoglycaemic and hyperglycaemic events. This includes relevant patient information and driving advice links. 


The Remission tab sets out the relevant criteria based on results, weight and medication for a patient to be in remission. The remission code still requires patients to be reviewed on an annual basis and will still include the patient on the QOF register. The diabetes resolved code shown at the bottom of the template will remove the patient from the register if required.

There are further pages for general Notes, Education, and Resources which includes Referral options. 

Please see the below video as a walkthrough of the template and key features.
