The NHS invites those interested to workshops in Hammersmith
The NHS in North West London is looking for people to help design and make a video to support others living with diabetes.
If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes or are just passionate about diabetes and helping others the NHS says please get in touch.
The NHS also says if you have any ideas about content for our video, your input is welcomed. No idea is too big or small.
You also have the opportunity to star in the video, so let the organisers know if you or someone you know would like to be featured.
Dr Tony Willis, Diabetes Clinical Director for the North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) says: "This is a great opportunity for the local community to get involved, get creative and share their views on how we support people living with diabetes.
"We want our patients to know that they are not alone. We are here to help them understand and manage their Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, and support them in making positive lifestyle changes."
The NHS is holding workshops on Friday 30 June, 9-11am and Wednesday 5 July, 6-8pm at St Paul’s Centre, Queen Caroline St, London W6 9PJ.
If you are interested in attending the workshops, getting involved or learning more about the project, please contact Adam Foster on 0203 350 4054 or Adam.Foster@nw.london.nhs.uk.
As the workshops have a limited number of spaces, please get in touch by Monday 26 June if you would like to attend.
Diabetes is a serious condition, but there are things you can do to help manage it and avoid developing serious complications. Visit the Diabetes UK website for tips on how to prevent Type 2 diabetes and manage the condition if you have been diagnosed.
