A Moray group campaigning for better care for Diabetes patients will be listening carefully to the words of the Chief Executive of Grampian NHS when he talks to their annual general meeting this week.
While there are growing numbers of children suffering from the condition in Moray the region has not had a resident paediatric consultant at its main hospital for several years.
That, according to the chairman of the Moray Diabetes Group, is a cause of real concern and one that they are hoping will be address by the health authority.
Mr Carey will address the group and members of the public at the open AGM on Wednesday when the manager of Dr Gray’s Hospital, Sandy Dustan, will also address the meeting, to be held at the Inkwell in the Elgin Youth Cafe on Francis Place from 7pm.
Moray Diabetes Group’s chairman, David Duff, said: “The absence of a resident paediatric consultant is of real concern.
“When dealing with children it is essential to have help and advice on hand locally – we look forward to hearing from Mr Carey on this and other crucial matters.”
