Diabetes Week OFFER – Travel Insurance

The Insurance Surgery is a leading expert for Travel Insurance for people with pre-existing medical conditions such as Diabetes. To help support and raise awareness for National Diabetes Week 2016 (Sunday 12th June to Saturday 18th June) we will be running a number of offers.

Diabetes week is an annual event run by Diabetes UK which is the leading and by far the largest charity for the condition in the UK. This event is the highlight of the Diabetes UK calendar which is aimed at raising awareness for Diabetes and to help raise vital funds for research, treatment and support.

Diabetes Week 2016 (12th to 18th June)

It is almost impossible to ignore the regular news and general chat about Diabetes which has become one of the major HOT TOPICS in UK press. With current Diabetes rates now up to an astonishing 4 million in the UK according to recent statistics released in 2016

Even though we hear so much about Diabetes as a medical condition and the current levels reported nationally, it is still vastly misunderstood. The theme of Diabetes Week is ‘Set the Record Straight’ which is as it says, to help remove some of those common myths about Diabetes.

Throughout Diabetes Week 2016 there will be a huge array of stories, facts and videos to help support the theme and tell the truth about Diabetes. Even though we all know what Diabetes is and have heard much about the numbers, still very few people understand what it’s like to live with the condition or what impact it has on those individuals.
