In Southwark, the DESMOND course is held monthly and is delivered to groups of up to 15 participants. The course normally runs across two days (over two three-hour sessions). Currently sessions are held on the 2nd and 3rd Friday of each month, from 9.45 am to 12.45 pm. The course is offered to people who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the last year, although participants may decide to invite a family member of friend to do the course with them.
