    If you live and/or work in Aylesbury Vale and have diabetes (or are a partner, parent/guardian, carer, sibling or health professional of someone who has), then I hope you may join the Aylesbury Vale Diabetes UK Group and support us in our efforts to raise funds, campaign for better services and raise awareness of diabetes throughout the Vale.

    There are over 22,000 people in Buckinghamshire with diabetes and another 150 are currently being diagnosed every month (that's another 1,800 every year) - and yet less than 18% of people living in the Bucks area who are meeting the key treatment targets for good control. Diabetes care in the county is on par with most others in England - average.

    We have just 250 members - 1.13% of all those in the county with diabetes, and yet we are making real progress in the area!

    See our website (http://aylesbury.diabetesukgroup.org/home/home.asp) or Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/126747970704602/) for more info.

    There's power in numbers - and the next 15 months are going to be the time to get some real significant improvements to diabetes care in the NHS: it's the general election in May 2015 and the politicians are already starting to plan out their campaigns to win your votes!
