​Attended Diabetic Foot Awareness for Beauty and Wellness Therapists webinar workshop, November 2020

All excellent but especially the observation & discussion of foot photos.  It has given me more confidence in spotting the difference between fungal infections & micro vascular damage. Also I would feel more confident in my communication with client & when to refer or not to! Also brilliant for giving me confidence in spotting other problems relating to diabetes, like signs of ulcer formation.

As Diabetes is a huge growing problem, understanding & awareness of this disease is vital. I think the more therapists & people that recognise changes in the feet related to Diabetes, the more we can help relieve the burden on the nhs & us all as tax payers but ultimately & most importantly, to save someone’s foot/feet & avoid amputation avoids so much distress, these are life changing issues for that individual!

​Attended Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) Assessment webinar workshop, October 2020

All aspects were useful to me, whether refreshing existing knowledge or new learning. It really helped my confidence in reassuring me that I do have the knowledge base and rationale, I just need the opportunity to practice the skills.  I would thoroughly recommend to colleagues. It is a well planned and well executed course. Value for money. Thank you.

​Attended Diabetic Foot Awareness for Beauty and Wellness Therapists webinar workshop, October 2020

This workshop was well presented and easy to understand as it was set towards non medical people. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I think this workshop is a must for anyone who treats people's feet.

​Attended Insulin Awareness/Update & Injection Technique webinar workshop, September 2020

I really enjoyed the training and felt both presenters were knowledgeable and explained all aspects in detail. I found it useful that we were able to ask questions and that the training was not limited due to current restrictions i.e. the fact that it was conducted by zoom did not detract at all from the quality of the training. Thank you I will recommend this training to my colleagues.

​Attended Diabetic Foot Awareness for Beauty and Wellness Therapists webinar workshop, August 2020

Heartily recommend it! I learned a lot of foot related signs I did not previously realise are often associated with diabetes and some practical ways to deal with them, and how to recognise when the client needs more urgent medical help than might have seemed obvious.


It was a really powerful, practical workshop. I realised how much I didn't know on this aspect of diabetes, so it will be hugely valuable to both my husband and some of my clients. Huge thanks to Duet Diabetes!

A range of workshops​

I would like to say what an excellent and experienced service I received from DUET diabetes, as a training manager it is a relief to receive a service that is not only efficient and organised but also knowledgeable and professional. Without the support from Duet diabetes the home I was working in would not have received a good rating from CQC as the diabetic care plans were one of their main focuses.

I also worked with DUET diabetes to train senior staff to a very high standard, the home I was working in fronted the pilot scheme for senior staff to administer insulin within the residential care setting.

Without the training and ongoing support, we may not have been able to have made the pilot the success that it was.

I would absolutely use DUET diabetes as a training provider again.

Rebecca Alcock

Trainer and Care Manager, Suffolk

​Diabetes Awareness and Diabetic Foot Screening workshops, February 2020

Duet diabetes offered to support me training HCAs in the basics of diabetes, enabling them to undertake a diabetes review including a foot check. I worked with Lynne planning a whole day to cover both topics, dates; timings and venue were all flexible to meet my needs.

It was a great day, very informative, pitched at just the right level with interesting, enthusiastic presenters.

It enabled 12 HCAs to go away inspired with confidence and a competence certificate to start the reviews straight away.

I can certainly recommend Lynne and Duet diabetes for your Diabetes training needs if you want a flexible, friendly, comprehensive approach.

Having completed training with the CCG, although knowledgeable and interesting, didn't cover enough details to become a trainer within my organisation.  Duet Diabetes was very thorough and explained in more detail what needed to be looked at.  I found all of the workshop useful, being able to assess feet and be able to improve the care given to residents.

I found the workshop very useful. The facilitator explained things fully covering the topic comprehensively but with useful handouts to make notes and for reminders after the workshop. The hands on part I found most beneficial being able to practice the skills just learnt.

'i found it very useful, I am not medically trained but I found the information very easy to understand with clear explanations using terminology that made sense. This is something we can train to our carers to hopefully catch anything developing with our clients early. I think the session was well planned and thought out, presented very well and I really enjoyed learning the information'.
