February 2021 Newsletter



December - February 2021

Group Meetings

As we continue to operate without face to face meetings and events, Group meetings in 2021 will be held via Zoom on the dates already scheduled until further notice. This is a directive from Head Office so please consider joining us. If anyone needs help joining Zoom (it is really easy) please let Alison know and she will be able to help get you started. Our next meeting is Monday 15th February from 7:30 - 9:30pm 

Log in details for the meeting will be sent out nearer the time. Anyone wishing to join us must first register with Alison via the group e mail. This is for privacy and security reasons. As we now have our own zoom account, we are able to offer 1:1 sessions so if anyone feels they need to talk to someone face to face just get in touch. Phone conversations are also still available, just call the Group phone number. 

In the Communty 

A HUGE thank you once again to Mr and Mrs Beard who, despite Covid have raised £100 for us over Christmas. 

Group News

Through Alison’s work with Diabetes UK we have been invited to feed into the future plans of the NHS locally with UHCW and with the National Diabetes Audit which is currently being reviewed for 2022 onwards.  More details will follow but please join in with requests for your thoughts and if you can, participate with on line meetings as this will shape and improve care for all of us in the future. 


Updating Details 

Just a gentle reminder to please update Alison with your contact details if you change address or phone number including a mobile.  Due to the current situation, Alison is periodically contacting members of the group to check on their wellbeing.
