Tendring Group

The Tendring Diabetes Patient Group (also known as the Tendring Forum) meets every first Thursday of the month from 10.30-12.30pm at CVS Tendring in Rosemary Road, Clacton-on-Sea.

The purpose of the group is to provide a single place for people living with diabetes to meet and learn more about the condition.


At the meetings members:

  • Hear updates about the NEEDS service, which was introduced from April 2014
  • Share new ideas and listen to interesting speakers on diabetes
  • Find out about how to get involved as a patient e.g. helping NEEDS with surveys
  • Learn about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and how to self- manage diabetes better for improved long term health


The group  arranges  for members of the NEEDS team to visit and give informative talks, as well other interesting speakers on topics such as:

  • Diet
  • Foot care
  • Weight management
  • Retinal eye screening
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition
