World Diabetes Day 2019
World Diabetes Day will be celebrated on Wednesday 14th November. This year the theme is "Family and Diabetes", with the tagline "protect your family". The main aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the impact that diabetes has on the family unit and to promote the role of the family in the management, care, prevention and education relating to diabetes.
The World Diabetes Day campaign has three main focus areas:
1. Discover diabetes
2. Prevent type 2 diabetes
3. Manage diabetes

Keep Well in Winter
Keep well in the winter - be prepared! Illness can upset your blood glucose levels. Colds and flu may increase your blood glucose levels and vomiting & diarrhoea bugs can lead to low blood glucose levels - as well as significant dehydration. Take precautions and, if you have not already done so, see your GP for a free flu vaccination this winter. If you do become unwell, see our "sick day rules" below.
