Free evening event in Thurrock for people with diabetes
Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in partnership with Diabetes UK will hold a free event to help people with diabetes know what services are available to them and to provide feedback on those services.
The Diabetes Engagement Evening will be held on Thursday 4 October at Committee Rooms 2/3, Civic Offices, New Road, Grays. The event aims to help people from the Thurrock area who have been diagnosed with diabetes, by providing them with essential information on the services available, what they should expect and how they feel the services meet their needs.
Diabetes is a serious, lifelong condition which can be treated with diet, exercise, medication and/or insulin.
Diabetes UK will provide information on the 15 Healthcare Essentials. Commissioners and providers will showcase local services available to people with diabetes in the area. This will be followed by a workshop enabling people to feedback on their experiences and tell commissioners how the services are working for them.
