Diabetes Service

In an emergency you can contact our team during the day or night – call these numbers for advice about managing diabetes when you are worried about illness, high blood glucose levels with ketones or hypoglycaemia or if you are unable to give/deliver insulin or measure blood glucose levels.

  • Daytime (8am – 6pm) – 0151 252 5766
  • Out of hours – 0151 228 4811. Ask for the diabetes out of hours on call service

You will be put through to the on-call member of the diabetes team. You may have to leave a message (we may be on another call or with a patient) but we will call you back within an hour.

After 10pm come directly to our Emergency Department if your blood glucose level is 14mmol/L or more and blood ketones are 1.5mmol/L or more.
