Diabetes roadshow

Diabetes roadshow

You said: The local community wanted to understand their risks of developing type 2 diabetes and evidence showed certain parts of West Lancashire were areas of high risk.

We did: We supported Diabetes UK with a successful awareness raising roadshow in Ormskirk and Skelmersdale, which offered free risk assessments for type 2 diabetes.   Combining the figures from the roadshow in Ormskirk and smaller scale pop up shop in Skelmersdale, a total of 313 individuals were assessed, with 161 of them showing moderate or high risk.  These individuals were provided with advice and tips on healthy living, and referred to their local GP practice.
