Diabetes Prevention Week

Diabetes Prevention Week 23rd - 29th May 2022

Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week is a joint campaign from NHS England and Diabetes UK that takes place 23–29 May 2022.

• You can prevent type 2 diabetes by eating a healthy, balanced diet, maintaining a healthy weight and keeping physically active.
• People living with diabetes also face higher risk of heart disease, stroke, nerve damage, foot problems, vision loss, kidney problems and dying with COVID-19.
• There are some groups at higher risk of type 2 diabetes: men, people of South Asian or Black ethnicity, people who are overweight and people
with a family history of type 2 diabetes.
• Find out your risk of type 2 diabetes by using the Diabetes UK Know Your Risk Score at riskscore.diabetes.org.uk or by searching ‘Know Your Risk’.

Please be aware of a scam that has come to our attention.

A patient at another surgery received a call from someone, stating they were a doctor at their surgery, and asking for their bank details so they could release their prescription.

Please note - No surgery staff will ever call and ask for your bank details for any reason. If you receive a similar call please can you let the surgery know and below are some websites for information & support.
