Norfolk and Waveney CCG Supports Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week

The campaign aims to raise awareness of Type 2 diabetes, how to prevent it, and at-risk groups, and encourages patients to check their risk via the Diabetes UK Know Your Risk tool.

That’s why we are raising awareness of the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and how to reduce it.

Dr Clare Hambling is the GP clinical lead for diabetes with Norfolk and Waveney CCG: “It’s really important that we raise awareness of Type 2 diabetes as it is often preventable through lifestyle choices. You can prevent Type 2 diabetes by eating a healthy, balanced diet, maintaining a healthy weight and keeping physically active.
