Overview
The DESMOND Tutors are dietitians, nurses, and podiatrists who work as part of the diabetes service across Central Lancashire.

We run DESMOND as a full day or 2 half days (including some evenings) on various days Monday to Friday at venues across Central Lancashire.

DESMOND is fun, free and informative and we look forward to seeing you at one of our sessions.
