The bus is part of the Healthy Lifestyle campaign, which is being organised by the CCG, Wiltshire Council and Diabetes UK.
Dr Steve Rowlands, Chairman of Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “This is a great opportunity to work with our colleagues at Wiltshire Council as we are all only too aware of the increasing impact that diabetes is having on our communities and by taking our messages on the road we aim to increase people’s awareness of this condition to enable them to take positive lifestyle actions.”
