Copies of an educational booklet for those suffering with diabetes have been donated to Clitheroe Health Centre by a local action group.

Chairman of The Ribble Valley Diabetic Group, Mr Gordon Dixon, presented Sister Carole Kay with copies of the Diabetic X Pert Patient Education programme booklet which helps newly diagnosed patients understand the importance of diabetic control.

They are pictured with nurses Julie McShane, Helen Marginson and Eileen Sumner.

The handbook increases sufferers’ understanding of diabetes and helps them make lifestyle choices to manage their blood glucose levels more effectively.
