New diabetes wellbeing website for people in Wiltshire
Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group in conjunction with local GPs has developed a new website – www.diabeteswellbeing.org – specifically aimed at providing support and advice for 23,500 people currently living with Type 2 diabetes in Wiltshire.
Ted Wilson, Director of Community Services and Joint Commissioning at NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group said:
“We’re delighted to be able to offer patients this fantastic new website, which provides lots of helpful information to better understand their diabetes diagnosis and practical advice on how to manage their condition.
“Whether someone is newly diagnosed, or is already living with Type 2 diabetes, the website provides a trusted one-stop-shop for the information they need.”
Dr Lindsay Kinlin, GP at the Orchard Partnership said:
“We know there can be a lot of information for patients to take in at appointments, so the new Diabetes Wellbeing website is a great resource for people to refer to afterwards in their own time.
“The website has great advice about small changes you can make to improve your lifestyle, and provides information on a free X-Pert course that patients can sign up to directly.”
The Wiltshire Diabetes Wellbeing website has been funded by the NHS National Diabetes Transformation Programme.
