Harrow CCG held its first 'open morning' on Saturday 18 June 'Help Yourself to Self Help' designed to provide information and support to people living with diabetes. It was a great success and visitors were able to ask lots of quesitons, meet loca organisations who help, advise and give clinical support to people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
The new CCG clinical lead for diabetes, Dr Mathi Woodhouse, was present, along with the CCG's Chair, Dr Amol Kelshiker, who has a special interest in diabetes. There were also education providers, diabetes specialist nurses and our own group provided Diabetes UK information/literature for patients. It was great to see you all there.
Let's hope that the CCG might consider doing another similar event to inform and empower people with diabetes to manage their condition as best they can.
