Bewdley Carers' Group Meeting

Bewdley Medical Centre Staff to Swim 22 Miles in aid of Diabetes UK


Bewdley Medical Centre has got a team together to swim the width of the English Channel (22 miles) in support of Swim22 – a Diabetes UK fundraiser to raise awareness of diabetes and promote a healthier way of living to support those living with diabetes, and to promote a healthier lifestyle to reduce the risk of diabetes. Our Channel champions will rise up to the challenge between 22 February and 22 May.

Statistics suggest that there are currently over 4 million people living with diabetes in the UK; this represents 6% of the UK population or 1 in every 16 people having diabetes.


Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar levels to become too high. There are two main types of diabetes, type 1 which is an autoimmune disease where the body destroys the cells that produce insulin, and type 2 (the most common type in the UK) where the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body’s cells do not react to insulin; about 90% of all adults with diabetes, have type 2.

You can help to manage type 2 diabetes through healthy eating, taking regular exercise and achieving a healthy body weight.


The benefits of Swim22 are simple – not only do you improve your physical health by reducing the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, regular physical activity keeps your body healthy and strong.  Swimming can also improve self-esteem and reduce anxiety – a great mental health booster. 


Why not join the Swim22 club today and swim towards a healthier lifestyle? Or if you would prefer to stay dry and give a donation to the Bewdley Medical Centre Team – please visit our surgery.
