In Leicester, a range of local partners collaborate to improve health
in the city, and I am pleased to report they are achieving a high
level of success in reaching communities within communities. The

It’s a five-minute read, and an interesting example of how to raise
the profile of your interventions to a broader national audience, and
a good introduction to the Leicester case for inspiration. You can

type 2 diabetes here.
