DESMOND is a full day of structured education for type 2 diabetics, following NICE Guidance (NG28), Type 2 Diabetics Adult Management. 

DESMOND is delivered in Community venues across North Staffordshire and Stoke, Monday to Friday and a Saturday once a quarter.  

The aim of the education is to reduce risk factors and the complications that develop from Type 2 Diabetes when blood sugars are not controlled.

To refer, the preference is to ask the GP / Practice Nurse to refer with up to date biometrics.
