Herts and West Essex Diabetes Support Group

Welcome to the Herts & West Essex Diabetes Support Group!

HWE DSG has a single purpose – to support people with Diabetes by helping them to better understand and manage their condition.

This is achieved through a programme of:-

  • Monthly webinars given by local experts responsible for our care
  • A regular electronic newsletter on subjects of interest
  • Providing a safe collaborative environment in which we can support each other

Join our Closed Facebook Group

HWE DSG has developed an active social media policy to promote activities and provide a safe place for people with Diabetes to collaborate on issue of concern.

The Facebook Group is a closed group limited to people who have Diabetes, are at risk of Diabetes, and families/carers of those with the condition.

There are strict ground rules for the Facebook Group to ensure that it is a safe and trusted environment in which people can be certain that an open dialogue is possible and any confidential information is secure.

Find out about Co-production of Diabetes Services in our Area

Co-production of Diabetes Services is a way of ensuring that people with Diabetes are actively engaged in helping to shape how

Primary and Secondary Care Services evolve in the future.

HWE DSG is actively engaged with the Diabetes Steering Group in South & West Herts and also the Hertfordshire Integrated

Diabetes Service (HIDS) operation in co-designing and reviewing both current and new services to ensure that high quality input is

available to the Service Providers in our area.

We will discuss with Providers in both East & North Herts and West Essex to evaluate how our members in these areas can be similarly engaged in co-production.

If you would like to be involved in co-production of services, please send your email address to HWE DSG at info@hwedsg.co.uk
