CCG backs Men’s Health Week

SWLCCG web

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.
