Tameside Hospital recently launched the first in a series of new community events hosted by Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, they are open to everyone.
The events aim to bring the hospital’s consultants, nurses and healthcare professionals into the heart of the Tameside community to discuss and educate the public on specific conditions.
In the first of the series, Professor Edward Jude, a Consultant Diabetologist and Endocrinologist, was joined by Kathryn McGladdery, Diabetes Specialist Nurse and Tracy Barker, Specialist Dietician to discuss a range of issues around the prevention, management and treatment of diabetes.
Those in attendance got a better insight into learning a little more about what diabetes is, the diagnosis of Diabetes, complications, diet and prevention. There was also an opportunity to have a chat with the experts and discuss any issues or questions.
Commenting on the first event Professor Jude said: “This was a great opportunity for the communities of Tameside to learn more about diabetes, what causes it, what happens to you and how it can be managed. I was delighted to host the first in a series of community events provided by the hospital and I think it’s an excellent way to gain knowledge and insight on conditions that affect many members of our community.”
