Widnes General Practices have come together to review the diabetic patient care they each deliver with the aim of delivering a consistent high standard across all eight practices.

The practices are currently in a testing phase where they are aligning their systems and processes, considering the care given to patients and testing what works and what doesn’t.

As part of this work they would like to speak to Type 2 diabetic patients aged 17 years and over to share with you the work they have done and get some feedback and comments to further inform this work.

The general practices have asked Halton & St Helens Voluntary & Community Action to carry out a focus group on Tuesday, June 4, from 7pm to 9pm, at St Marie’s, Lugsdale Road, Widnes.

There are limited places for the session so if you would like to be involved contact Matthew Roberts by phone 01928 592 405 or email mroberts@haltonsthelensvca.org.uk
