Diabetes UK {DIABETES Our contact Jean BORRILL 01707 888161}

We have been asked to raise awareness of the first meeting in Cheshunt of "Type-2-Together". This is a pilot project, organised jointly by Diabetes UK and the NHS at Addenbrookes Hospital, to set up Peer Support Groups for those living with Diabetes Type 2. Cheshunt has been chosen as one of the first of its kind in this area. It is hoped that by meeting in a Peer Support Group, those living with the condition will be able to share their experiences and discuss information and tips in a very relaxed and informal manner, learn more about diabetes management and well-being and enjoy the support and friendship of others in the same situation.
This first meeting was held at the Beaumont Centre, Rowlands Fields, Turners Hill, Cheshunt on Thursday, 29th October at 10am.to 12 and thereafter every last Thursday in the month.
The Peer Support Group Leader is Joan Borrill
