Diabetes UK’s free online event will help you put your feet first

The North of England team at Diabetes UK team has arranged a free webinar that will be packed full of useful advice around foot care.

Putting your feet first has always been important for people living with diabetes, but it has been challenging at times this year, with appointments affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The ‘Let’s Talk About Feet’ webinar will take place on Tuesday, October 20 (8pm-9.30pm) and the emphasis will very much be on care, not scare… with no gory pictures!

Following on from Diabetes UK’s ‘Diabetes and Moving More’ event in September, there will be a mix of expert foot care advice and lived experiences. There will also be a live ‘how to check your feet’ session.

You’ll hear from:

  • Dr Rajiv Gandhi (Clinical Director & Consultant Physician at Northern General Hospital, Sheffield)
  • Donna Welch (Podiatry Operations Manager and Professional Lead for Hull and East Riding Podiatry)
  • Colette Jones (community podiatrist based in South Tyneside and a member of the Northern Diabetes Footcare Network)
  • Diabetes UK volunteer Andy Lavender, who will share his foot care experiences

The session will take place via Zoom and it’s quick and easy to register HERE. It will be aimed at people living with diabetes and will also be useful for anyone caring for someone with diabetes.

Please email evie.kinghorn@diabetes.org.uk if you have any queries.


Thank you again,
