Colchester Forum

The Colchester diabetes patient forum is a friendly group that meets on a Wednesday evening, every other month at St John’s Church Family Room, St John’s Close, Colchester, CO4 0HP.

The purpose of the forum is for people living with diabetes and their carers to meet and discuss the diabetes service and provide feedback to the Diabetes Services Board which steers how the service is run.

Attending our diabetes patient forum will give you the opportunity to learn more about diabetes and get involved in your diabetes care. We discuss a variety of topics such as:

  • Diet
  • Foot care
  • Weight management
  • Retinal eye screening
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition
  • The NEEDS service

Why not come along to a meeting and find out more!
