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.
