DESMOND is currently run in two localities to enable those in the more rural areas to attend a venue closer to their homes. It is run in two half sessions on a Friday morning from 0915 – 1245. Sessions are held in Scunthorpe once per month (Learning & Development Centre, Enderby Road, DN17 2JL) and Brigg (Health Place, Wrawby Road, DN20 8GS). We currently have two nurse and two dietitians as DESMOND Educators.
