Diabetes education in Worcestershire
Taking control of your diabetes
It is important that you take control of your diabetes by learning how to self-manage your condition.
These options are available to you if you are registered with a Worcestershire GP:
Type 1 diabetes
DAFNE , XPERT Insulin or insulin pump groups.
Newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes
Your GP should provide you with a Diabetes UK information pack on diagnosis, refer you to our First Steps course and provide you with a login to Mapmydiabetes.
Existing type 2 diabetes
Mapmydiabetes is a useful resource for all people with type 2 diabetes.
If you would like to attend a group education session, please ask your GP or practice nurse to refer you to First Steps or to X-PERT Insulin if you are on insulin.
If you have already attended an education programme you can attend an update session.
