Welcome to the Bristol Diabetes Support Network Group

We are a network of local groups for people with diabetes in the Bristol and surrounding areas. Each group meets every other month in a relaxed setting for a programme of support and education. We aim to cover topics such as how can diabetes affect me, what care to expect, food choices, healthy lifestyle, exercise and activity, taking control of diabetes, foot care and eye screening.

Bristol Community Health, the local Sustainability and Transformation Partnership and Diabetes UK support the groups. Meetings are advertised locally and on this website diabetesbristol.org.uk or telephone 01179 309986.

A Facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/diabetesukbristol is available to share ideas.
