South West Lincolnshire CCG has added its support to Men’s Health Week, which this year takes place between 11 – 17 June and will focus on men and diabetes.

The fact is men are more likely to get diabetes and more likely to suffer complications as a result of diabetes.  In addition, they are also more likely to face amputation as a result of diabetes.  And men are more likely to die from diabetes.

In the UK one person develops dementia every three minutes, yet too many people feel excluded and face the disease alone.

With this in mind, in 2018 Dementia Awareness Week will be renamed Dementia Action Week and will run between 21–27 May. Locally, the Dementia Action Alliance and South West Lincolnshire CCG will be asking people to unite and take actions big and small to make a difference in the lives of people with dementia.
