Long and exhausting 1st day at Newbury/Royal Berkshire Show

Up at 5am to get everything organised, though in reality public didn’t really start to arrive until 9am.  Got through 140 QDiabetes assessments, loads of advice and health promotion and three new diagnoses of Diabetes.

Some people really seemed to like and get the idea of future risk and interpreting into what actions might be possible to change things…  Others reported “oh I’ve had a recent blood test so I am OK” and therefore struggled with the idea of prevention…

Strange mixture of worried well, and unworried unwell!  Highest risk of the day about 50%

Roll on Sunday!
