About us

The Waltham Forest Local Group used to meet every two months to hear from expert speakers on subjects such as podiatry care, dietary information for diabetics, eye treatment, exercise, and proposals for changes to local hospital services.

Group members also work alongside staff from the Diabetes Clinic based at Whipps Cross Hospital to provide an annual Diabetes screening day in Walthamstow market by distributing information and fundraising.

However these events have not been possible in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and we have relied on exchange of information and discussion through email and WhatsApp. We hope to revert to something like a normal programme of face-to-face meetings once it is safe to do so. Any future events will be posted on the Events page of this website.
