Volunteer Engagement Day

A very successful Diabetes Scotland 2019 Volunteer Engagement Day in Glasgow on 15th June. Followed by the Inspire Awards presentation in the evening. Photo is a coffee break between workshops with David Chaney, Diabetes UK's Director for Local Impact who gave us a presentation on our Strategy, in the centre.

Many thanks to the West Fife Peer Support Community Group for providing this presentation on Metformin, given by Professor Sutherland at their Open Meeting on Saturday 25th May 2019.


West Fife Group Becomes a

Peer Support Community Group

At the recent AGM the meeting took the big decision to change the way the Group is set up.

West Fife now has a Peer Support Community Group.

This does away with the need to have a formal Committee with Office bearers or hold a bank account.

The existing funds will be transferred to the the Adopted Project run by Professor Calum Sutherland.

Any future expenses will be met by Diabetes Scotland.

Open Meetings will continue to be organised.

The AGM agreed that Bob Liddle will be the Lead Volunteer and Eric Moodie the Deputy Lead Volunteer. 

Nominated Local Team Contacts are Elaine Nolton and Grace MacLachlan.

Know the Numbers

“Know the Numbers" is a must for people with diabetes to help them focus on what is the ideal place to be -  but also in preparation for the next appointment with the Diabetes Clinics - or to make an appointment outside of your normal clinic if there is something you wish to discuss with your Health Care Professional.   Please note that the bottom number is the average that your reading would be on your blood glucose meter and not that it is the top number changed to the “old money” results we used to work with.   Do please run these off or keep them on file for your reference.   A very welcome piece of work to help us all.

NHS Fife have issued three leaflets on "Know the Numbers" - one for Adults with Type 1; one for Children with Type 1; and one for Adults with Type 2.
