Lions give free diabetes scans

A CLUB will hold free scans for diabetes.

The Lions Club of Hemel Hempstead will check people for diabetes between 10am and 3pm at the Volunteer Centre in Marlowes on February 4.

A registered nurse will give results immediately and it only involves a tiny prick of the finger.

Dianne Crook, from the club, said: “With early detection it can be treated and the severe complications such as blindness and limb amputation avoided.”
