A free information morning for people living with diabetes is to be held in the Lintrathen Room at Whitehills Health and Community Centre in Forfar on Wednesday, September 25, from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m.

The morning will be focusing on supporting self-management and attendees will be able to participate in informal workshops designed to highlight and explain the benefits of self-management and how these can positively impact on diabetes.

During the session attendees will also be able to find out more about the wide range of support that is offered by Angus Long Term Conditions Groups as well as NHS Tayside’s Diabetes Managed Clinical Network.

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.”
