The Group is affiliated to Diabetes UK and sponsored by Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust. It comprises Type 2s and Type 1s, both newly diagnosed and those with many years of experience, together with partners, other family members, friends and carers. Membership is drawn from Fulham, Hammersmith and the surrounding areas.
The purpose of the Group is both educational and to provide a place where you can meet other people with diabetes and share experiences. The Group meets 8 times a year. The 2021 program is accessed by clicking on the 'About Us' tab above. The programme usually rotates through some 10 sessions. There is an informal talk on a specialist subject from a wide and exciting panel of speakers with lively questions and discussion. Due to COVID-19, meetings are continuing virtually via ZOOM - see details below.
