This month Susie Weir our clinical Pharmacist organised a patient education session for diabetic patients.
We were delighted to welcome Gillian who is a senior dietician within BNSSG to Kingswood Health Centre on Thursday 5th July. She gave a fun and interactive, highly informative talk to the group of diet-controlled diabetic patients to help explain and reinforce important advice on how to make manageable, positive changes to their everyday eating habits.
There were plenty of opportunities for questions and comments from the group, and information booklets from Diabetes UK were available. Refreshments were kindly provided by our excellent PPG members. We felt this was a very enjoyable session, and one which will have helped some of our patients better approach their own diabetes management.
We hope to be able to offer further patient education sessions on differing topics in the future. Watch this space!
Thank you to Gillian and the members of our PPG who volunteered to help set up this session.
