Diabetes Connect

Take Control of Your Diabetes

If your recent blood test (HBA1c) result was pre-diabetic, and your GP has referred you to our service, you can work with us to find the right solutions for you. Our support will offer you a space to reflect and then decide on what actions to take.  

We will arrange six friendly one-hour sessions, to suit your schedule. You will also meet other people to share ideas, information, and your experiences, in our workshops. 

We are working with the Greenway Community Practice  (GP) to test our new service, focussed on improving your pre-diabetes test result.  

Our sessions will take place at the Greenway Centre which is opposite the Greenway Community Practice.

We will work together to adapt your current lifestyle through:  

  • group work and individual meetings 
  • planning your food, drink and physical activities
  • finding further support in your community 

The benefits you may experience will be:

  • feeling more awake
  • having fewer headaches
  • reducing aches and pains
  • limiting the harmful effects of high sugar levels in your blood
  • living a longer and happier life, in better heath, while staying independent as you age
  • feeling less alone and more connected in your diabetes journey
