A DIABETES awareness and help day will take place at Kidderminster Hospital.

The open day event will be held at the facility's Fred Holland Centre for Diabetes on Thursday next week, from 4pm until 7pm.

The session will feature a number of trade stalls with diabetes products as well as information on dietary information. Diabetes specialist nurses and a dietitian will also be on hand to answer any questions and provide help.

The event is being organised by the Wyre Forest branch of Diabetes UK.
