Calderdale has had a DESMOND programme operating successfully since 2008. Courses are held in various localities all over the Calderdale area; covering Todmorden to Brighouse and everywhere in between. Please contact your GP or Practice Nurse for referral.

DESMOND is an interactive group session; of upto 10 newly diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes patients, running over one full day (9am12pm, 1pm4pm) or two half days (9am12pm) and the aim is to give participants the knowledge, ability and confidence to start to manage their diabetes day to day. 

All our DESMOND groups are facilitated by a Diabetes Dietitian and Podiatrist or Podiatry Assistant and we have a warm, friendly approach, with no pressure to participate on the day if you were thinking group sessions might not be for you. We welcome everyone along and encourage you to invite a supportive partner, relative or friend with you on the day; however due to limited space you may only invite one partner.


For further information please contact your GP/Practice Nurse or telephone our friendly DESMOND Co-ordinator Carol for details on 01422 222033.
