Diabetes UK have been holding National Awareness events this week and I was pleased to be invited to the QEQM Hospital, Margate to find out what the events were all about.
Sarah, a Diabetic Nurse at the hospital, was hosting the event and staff from all the different wards were invited to the Health Hub where they were able to participate in interactive games and discussions to develop their awareness of Hypoglycaemia.
As well as being great fun, the event was extremely informative. Staff from the different speciality wards were able to learn more about Diabetes and how an increased awareness could help in their day to day work.
I learned lots about how to spot someone who may be experiencing hypoglycemia and how to help them. More information about Diabetes and Hypoglycemia can be found on the Diabetes UK website.
I would like to thank Sarah Gregory for inviting me to the event and wish her team well for the rest of the awareness drive.
