Type 2 Diabetes Testing Service

Medway Diabetes

We would like to bring to your attention a new free service for the residents of Medway which enables you to test your risk potential from getting Type 2 Diabetes.

Many people are at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes without realising it.  From the NHS viewpoint the growth of Type 2 Diabetes is a major concern and already accounts for around 10% of the budget-and is likely to grow.

We all know that prevention is better than cure, so Medway Diabetes are keen that as many people as possible take this free test to acess their risk and then if appropriate sign up to the free programmes that they are offering to help combat the Type 2 Diabetes threat.

Please visit Medway Diabetes:

The programmes take place across the Medway area and are available now.
