World Diabetes Day 2017

World Diabetes Day 2017

Type 2 diabetes is a risk for around 11.9 million people in the UK. Anyone can get type 2 diabetes but some people are more at risk than others. It is important to assess your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and take steps to lower this risk.

Diabetes Risk Assesment Clinics

This year to mark world diabetes day, we held a drop-in diabetes risk assessment clinic at our Belfast premises. Our Health, Safety and Wellbeing Coordinator, Nikki, had a busy day conducting glucose checks and MOT health checks for members of the public and employees from a selection of workplaces.

Are you are interested in educating your employees on the risks of diabetes and how to reduce this risk? Health Matters can deliver Diabetes Awareness Seminars at your work location. Alternatively, we can provide on-site MOT health checks or you can visit one of our drop-in clinics in Newry or Belfast.
