National Diabetes Prevention Week: Get a free check tomorrow at Centre4ltd or sign up to be part of the pre-diabetes collaborative
National Diabetes Prevention Week has arrived and a special drop-in session is being held locally so you can check your own health.
The one-day session will offer pre-diabetes risk assessments and blood pressure testing for people. You can pop by any time between 10.30am and 1pm, on Tuesday in the main hall at Centre4, Wootton Road, Grimsby, DN33 1HE. Those attending the session will also receive a free gift.
During the last few years, the volunteers have performed over 2,000 risk assessments with members of the public, and referred 30 per cent of these people to their GPs for further management. Their work won a highly commended award in 2015 from the Quality In Care programme for Reducing pre-diabetes risk in North East Lincolnshire.
