Welcome to the SD blog!

Hi Everyone

SD has joined the blogging world, so we can share our thoughts and bring you the latest news and comment, and also give you the chance to share yours with us in a really easy way.  We've called it SD Listens because the art of listening is something really important to us - whether it's listening to you through your comments here or on our website, encouraging and demonstrating listening skills in all our workshops or writing about the value of listening in our books and publications.  One of our favourite tips for participants in our workshops to develop skills in working with people with long term conditions like diabetes is "give people 'a good listening to' as opposed to 'a good talking to"!

That's all for now - look forward to hearing your thoughts soon!
