“We would like to hear their feedback - both positive or negative - so that better health provision can be made or improved.
“We are also starting our five weekly Stamford diabetes peer groups meeting.
“The first one will on February 18 from 2pm to 4pm in the Burghley Room of the Stamford Art Centre.
“We will have a very proactive program for better management of diabetes and try to avoid the complication of diabetes. It is a very unforgiving condition and we must respect its boundaries.”
