For people with diabetes

A free information evening for people living with diabetes is to be held in the Occupational Therapy Room at Links Health Centre in Montrose on Thursday (June 27), from 6.30pm until 8.30.

Organised by the Montrose Diabetes Forum the evening is aimed at people living in Montrose and the surrounding area who are living with diabetes and is also open to their families and carers.

The theme of the evening is living well with diabetes and will focus on looking at current research into diabetes care and treatment, asking the question ‘What can we learn from today’s research?’

During the session attendees will be able to hear about new developments in diabetes research and discuss how they may impact on future care.

Light refreshments will be provided and it is hoped this event will be an opportunity for people living with diabetes, their families and carers to get together in a relaxed and informal environment.

Rhona Guild, Primary Care Manager, Angus Community Health Partnership, said: “Living with a long-term condition can be very challenging. That is why it is important for people affected by a long-term condition to have access to the right information, education, support and services to help them manage their condition more effectively.

“I would encourage people living with diabetes and their families and friends to come along to the free event at the Links Health Centre.”
