Diabetes Week 2013 - Be part of the story

We're supporting Diabetes Week. This year the focus is on research and giving people the chance to become part of the diabetes research story. Diabetes UK have been making breakthroughs in diabetes research for more than 75 years, and never stop working towards a future without diabetes.


Our Diabetes Teams will be manning display stands and will answer queries on either side of the county in Atrium at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and West Block Outpatient in Cheltenham General  to raise awareness about Diabetes Week (9th-15th of June).


The team will display updated and useful information on all aspects of Diabetes for people with the condition, their family, carers and staff. They will also encourage people to talk about the issues relating to all aspects of diabetes and ensure that people know where to seek support.


The week is being organised by Diabetes UK and the aim is to empower patients, staff and carers and improve their confidence with regards to Diabetes.
