Paula Carr Diabetes Centres

The first project the Trust funded was to build and equip the Paula Carr Diabetes Care Centre in Ashford, which was opened by HRH, the Princess of Wales on 21 October 1992.

Since then, the charity has provided financial support to build and equip a further two Paula Carr Diabetes Centres in Maidstone and Margate.

All three centres today provide a base from which diabetes specialists provide integrated care, treatment, screening and health education for people living with diabetes in their areas.

The Ashford centre is also home to the specialist retinal eye screening service available to all NHS diabetes patients in Kent and Medway which is operated by In Health Intelligence.
