Following the announcement of social distancing recommendations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, group-based face-to-face delivery of programmes is no longer in line with government advice. As such, group-based face-to-face services will stop from Friday 20 March 2020.

If you are a patient with Type 2 diabetes we have digital programmes available for example Oviva and Second Nature - book here

If you have been referred for Diabetes Education by your GP and still want a face to face course, you will be held in a waiting list. We will contact you again once face to face courses resume.

If you're not sure how digital courses work, call us on 020 3474 5500

Additionally, if you would like to take the opportunity to learn more about your diabetes whilst at home, why not try BERTIE Online . BERTIE Online is a free diabetes education course for people with Type 1 diabetes that has lots of useful information to help you understand and manage insulin doses compared to carbohydrate intake and live life on a day to day basis. It’s easy to do on your phone, tablet or PC.


It is important to note that BERTIE Online is not a substitute for group education and you should still look to attend a BERTIE or DAFNE programme when possible.
