Living Well with Diabetes Days are free events that offer people with Type 2 diabetes the chance to attend workshops with a diabetes specialist nurse, podiatrist, dietician and eye care specialist,
The events are led by leading charity Diabetes Uk in partnership with the CCG and/or the local Diabetes UK support group.
The aim is to equip people with diabetes with the information they need to eat a healthy diet, care for their feet, monitor their eyesight and maintain their overall health and wellbeing. They also create the opportunity to meet other people with diabetes and join support groups.
A Living Well with Diabetes Day took place at Doddinghurst Road Church in Brentwood on 21 February 2019.
The event was attended by around 30 people and opened by the CCG's clinical lead for diabetes Dr Femi Salako who is a GP in Langdon Hills.
