Diabetes Screening

On Sunday 16th July, we hired the Banbury town hall for a couple of hours to offer FREE screening. Clare and Sue from Lloyds Pharmacy came along and tested 34 people - most of whom were given the all clear, but there were a couple who were invited to go through a more detailed check. We need to raise awareness of this very important issue - click here, or do please feel free to contact us with any questions.


We may run another event soon - keep checking back for details.
