At the request of the President of Diabetes UK, Haddenham resident David Lindsey gave a thirty minute presentation on his work with Tyrefighters Weight Loss Group to the executive and members of Diabetes UK at the Aylesbury Canal Society's headquarters on the 6th December.
The presentation covered the progress and development of the Group since its inception nearly five years ago and it meets at the Haddenham Health Centre at 09.00 on the Saturday mornings when the centre is open anyway for patients.
Membership of Tyrefighters is free and there is no obligation of any kind. David talks on the three pillars of Tyrefighting which are that we eat too much, we eat the wrong stuff and we don't take enough exercise. Added to this he speaks on techniques which can be of great help in enabling the members to meet their weight loss targets. The meetings last for just under an hour, and the results over the four years plus have been excellent. They even have members who come from Harrow just to benefit from the advice.
The presentation to Diabetes UK was very successfull and well appreciated, so much so that the President sent the following message to David "Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful presentation at our DUK Christmas meeting yesterday and to congratulate you for an initiative that is a perfect example of how patients can contribute to the prevention and self management agenda of a GP surgery. You have inspired me to pursue discussions with both my colleagues at DUK and the CCGs on how to build on your work and allow others to benefit from your unique initiative".
