Meet The County Durham Medical Duo Trying To Ease Diabetes Pressure On The NHS

A COUNTY Durham medical duo are hoping to provide more support for type two diabetes sufferers and help ease the pressure on the NHS in the region by introducing a programme of support.

Husband and wife team Dr Amanda Porch and Dr Paul Baker, who continue to practice as NHS GP’s, have pinpointed the health condition as a matter of priority after seeing that diabetes effects 4.9 million people in the UK, 90 per cent of which have type 2 diabetes, while a further 850,000 people are currently living with type two diabetes but are yet to be diagnosed.
