Diabetes support programme

by Laura Johnston

Anyone living with diabetes is invited to attend St Helens & District Group of Diabetes UK’s meetings for information and support about living with the condition.

You are also welcome to attend the sessions if you know someone who has the condition and want to learn more, or if you are at risk of developing it in the future.

As well as expanding your knowledge of diabetes, the support programme is a good way to meet others in your situation and ask any questions you might have.

The sessions are free and take place at 7.30pm on the dates below at St Helens United Reformed Church, King Street WA10 2JZ – just drop by.

For further details, you can call 0151 480 0821 or email rhubarbs@btinternet.com

On Wednesday 1 May 2019, there will be a short AGM followed by a talk about annual checks, and blood tests and results will all be explained. This will be led by Dr Sid McNulty, a Consultant Diabetologist and Endocrinologist at the Specialist Diabetes Unit, St Helens Hospital.

On Wednesday 5 June 2019, Prof Kevin Hardy, Consultant Physician, Endocrinologist and Medical Director at St Helens & Knowsley Hospitals Trust will be leading the session which surrounds the things you can do to add years to life and life to your years.
