Type 2 Diabetes
We are aware that a number of patients registered at Lymebay Medical Practice may be concerned having received a text message (SMS) yesterday which stated they may be at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes – asking them to click on a link to a third party website.
These messages are part of an ongoing campaign to encourage people to assess their risk of Type 2 Diabetes and is no way a diagnosis; we would also like to reassure anyone who received this message that their information has not been passed to any third parties.
We would like to apologise for any distress caused by these messages.
If you would like to find out your risk of Diabetes, please visit Diabetes UK Know Your Risk tool and learn what you can do to lower your risk. This is a national health prevention programme, and there is no need to contact your GP surgery.
