Diabetes Live Well is delivered in a relaxed, informal, non-judgemental and enjoyable way, focusing on the person living with diabetes. The facilitators share their evidence- based knowledge and practical skills in diabetes care, and encourage participants to share their experiences of living with diabetes.
How does it work?
Working in groups of up to 14 people, the courses are delivered by a specilaist nurse and dietician or other qualified healthcare professional. There is additional capacity for some people to be accompanied by their carer.
Courses run for one 6-hr day, mostly on Mondays but occasionally on a Saturday up to four times a year. In some cases it there may be the option to split a course over 2 days.
Here's what some recent Live Well course participants told us:
"It was an informative and supportive Live Well programme, I feel more comfortable about my diagnosis"
"The Live Well programme really helped me to focus on my diet"
