Diabetes UK opens regional Facebook group


The North of England team at Diabetes UK have recently opened a public Facebook group in order to reach and support more people living with diabetes in the region.

The group is a great opportunity to chat to others living with diabetes, share positivity, receive updates from healthcare professionals and from Diabetes UK. Anyone with an interest in diabetes – from people living with the condition to health care professionals – is welcome to join.

Please note, the group is not used for any medical questions and Diabetes UK asks people to refer to their relevant healthcare professionals for medical advice.

The group is called ‘Diabetes UK chat: Your Friends in the North’ and can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/193410685443622/.
