Laurence and Clarissa from the S.W.E.E.T team
Thurrock CCG has teamed up with the Community Diabetes Team at NELFT to offer a training programme called: S.W.E.E.T (South West Essex Education and Training). The 3 hour, one off session helps you manage and cope with your diabetes (either Type 1 or 2) and improve long-term outcomes.
Group education is an essential part of your care. Find out how your medications work, what diet is best for you, and what actually is happening in the body with diabetes.
Dr Anjan Bose, a GP, Tutor and Diabetes Lead for Thurrock said: “We know from evidence that when people attend these group sessions, they feel more empowered to be able to manage their diabetes. Good self-management means better long-term health, with fewer complications. Being with a group of people who have the same condition can also be very liberating.
“Remember, good education and self-management is just as important as taking your medication.”
