Our free Myhealth workshops are all about helping you make small manageable changes in your life that will make a big impact on your health. We understand everyone leads different and busy lives so we encourage patients at our workshops to make those changes to fit around your lifestyle.
All our workshops are interactive group sessions lasting 2 hours, and are all run by a health professional (GP or pharmacist). This gives you the chance to ask any burning diabetes questions you wouldn’t usually get time to ask in your usual doctors appointment.
Managing your diabetes will mean having the knowledge of how to work with your doctors surgery and in between those appointments, and we as a programme can offer you that knowledge to keep in control of your diabetes.
Remember there is no such thing as mild diabetes, so even if you just need a refresher on your knowledge this free workshop will help you.
