The NHS in North West London is looking for people to help design and make a video to support people living with diabetes.
If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes or are just passionate about diabetes and helping others then please get in touch.
If you have any ideas about content for their video, they would welcome your input. No idea is too big or small.
You also have the opportunity to star in the video so let them know whether you or someone you know would like to be featured.
Dr Tony Willis, Diabetes Clinical Director for the North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) said: “This is a great opportunity for the local community to get involved, get creative and share their views on how we support people living with diabetes. We want our patients to know that they are not alone. We are here to help them understand and manage their Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, and support them in making positive lifestyle changes.”
Come and meet them
They are holding workshops on Friday 30 June, 9-11am and Wednesday 5 July, 6-8pm at St Paul’s Centre, Queen Caroline St, London W6 9PJ.
If you are interested in attending the workshops, getting involved or learning more about the project, please contact Adam Foster on 0203 350 4054 or at Adam.Foster@nw.london.nhs.uk. As the workshops have a limited number of spaces, please get in touch with them by Monday 26 June if you would like to attend.
Diabetes is a serious condition, but there are things you can do to help manage it and avoid developing serious complications.
