Ethical medical supplies manufacturer, and East Bank sponsors, GlucoRx are inviting supporters to take care of their health tomorrow by offering free diabetes tests.
The Woking-based company, who are the NHS’ second-largest suppliers of quality diabetic products, will be offering advice and a quick, simple test from their stand inside the turnstiles at the High Street End. Best results are achieved if you haven’t eaten within the previous two hours, but even if you have just had lunch please go along to learn more about a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high. It is a disease which affects over 3 million people aged 16 and over in the UK – around 850,000 of whom, it is estimated, are undiagnosed.
Founded in 2010, Gluco Rx have saved the NHS approximately £18 million in the past three years with a commitment to improving patients’ lives and products which are up to one-third cheaper than their competitors. The company pride themselves on prioritizing patient care so profits can go towards extra nurses, newer equipment and greater research to reinvest into care of the local community. Some products, including blood glucose meters which use the latest enzyme technology, are even given to surgeries and hospitals free of charge.
Commercial Manager Mark Butler has already undertaken his test with Gluco Rx National Sales Manager Chris Chapman – with largely positive results – so why not be next in line? For further information, also visit www.GlucoRx.co.uk.
