Welcome to B&NES Diabetes Education

Our Diabetes Education sessions provide sound advice, information and encourage people who are at risk of being diagnosed with, or have Diabetes type 2 to be proactive and to take responsibility for day to day management of their condition.

We support adults over 18 years of age who live in the Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) area or who are registered with a B&NES GP.

More about us

Our Type 2 Diabetes Education sessions are available as part of our ‘Living Well’ Programme. There are two separate programmes the first is for people who are ‘At-Risk’ of being diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 and the second, provides comprehensive advice and support which equips patients with knowledge to enable them to self-manage their condition proactively:

  • ‘Living Well with Diabetes Type 2 (formerly Conversation Map)

This group session provides a wealth of information in a short day programme (9.30 am – 2.45 pm) for those who have Type 2 Diabetes. Sessions are run once a month in venues across the Bath and North East Somerset Area.
