“Your feet are incredibly important if you have diabetes and there’s a lot you can do yourself to take care of them. Our diabetes health, diet and wellbeing day in Barnstaple will be putting feet first and equipping you with the information you need to keep them healthy now and for the future. At the same time, you’ll be able to ask any other questions or raise any other concerns you might have about diabetes.”
If you have any questions or concerns about diabetes, please feel free to drop in, have a cup of tea and find out more!
