A1C glucose testing
More people than ever before now have diabetes. If nothing changes, experts predict that 5.5 million people will have diabetes in the UK by 2030. Around 90% of people with diabetes have (preventable) type 2 diabetes. Around 8% of people with diabetes have type 1 diabetes.
Scientific studies show that employer-based interventions can effectively increase screening for diabetes and prediabetes. Offering your employers the opportunity to take a quick and easy test can provide them with a result in minutes, showing their risk of developing diabetes.
An early diagnosis means your employees can take control of their health before it impacts on their ability to work. Not only that, but an early diagnosis can prevent them developing a life-changing disease.
Without proper screening or management, diabetes can lead to emotional and physical difficulties. As employee health and wellness plays a significant role in performance, employers must assess the best ways to support employees and empower them to live healthier, longer lives. Implementing an effective diabetes screening strategy can help maximise employee health and productivity.

A pragmatic and common-sense approach is a key factor in why I turn to the firm for advice.
Your note was very clear about the seemingly complicated and tricky matter and was very helpful in forming our view. Thanks again for your valuable advice and I look forward to working with you in the future.
The whole team is always incredibly responsive, and they work hard to ensure that the process is as smooth as possible.
I found this course to be excellent. The knowledge I have gained a be so useful for my work and personal. The learning exercises were so good too. It was also beneficial to discuss experiences with others.
Your approach is one of collaboration, taking your time to understand the issues, and our position, and then working proactively with us in a practical manner.
Bruce was a very engaging trainer, and very creative in his approach. He had his audience connecting very well. The training course was very interesting. Thank you, Bruce.
This is one of the best courses I have been on. The content has been very relevant and practical which will help me in my role and also in my personal life. The instructors have been engaging; passing on their passion for this subject.
I am highly appreciative of the advice and work I received from Joe Milner and the team at Loch Associates Group.
Joe assisted me with drafting complex supplier contracts and templates for my business and I cannot praise him enough. The work was thorough and Joe’s attention to detail showed he had taken time to really understand what was needed, suggesting ways to adapt them as necessary for our business.
All communications, including from the support team were clear and timely. It was interesting to hear they offer a retainer service, which means Joe can effectively work as the Company’s in-house counsel too, which is a useful service for a business of our size.
Thank you again!
Thank you for the superb advice you have provided us with over the years.
Thanks for all your help. Very impressed with how you pressed the negotiations forward on Wednesday to allow us to reach a quick resolution.
With his first-hand experience in dealing with all kinds of medical emergencies; Bruce is not only able to provide us with the latest guidelines and techniques but also the kind of personal support you need when facing the stressful situation of how you will react during a medical emergency.
The firm is unique, bespoke, and provides a fantastic personalised service.

Being a new employer can be very daunting but she gave me the confidence to forge ahead with the process always explaining things in a straight forward manner.
When I saw Bruce last year I was in a very bad place mentally. For me personally, he came into my life at the right time and if it wasn’t for him I really don’t know if I would be here today. He listened to me and made other people listen and changes were made for the better which helped me, as it improved my life for me. I am in a much better place now and happier in my work and it’s all thanks to Bruce.
Bruce was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and made the 3 days training really enjoyable. His experience as a paramedic gave us 100% confidence that we were receiving the best possible training.
I was an attendee of the course and after talking to my colleagues who were there we have all said how eye-opening and informative it was. We found a more interactive approach was beneficial as we could relate and draw from our own experiences.
What is the impact of diabetes on the workplace?
What are an employee’s rights at work if they have diabetes?
What adjustments might be made for an employee with diabetes?
Disability law is about making everything fairer by making sure that people with a disability have the same chance at a career as others. This means that an employer may need to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ so an employee can do their job properly.
An employer might help by:
- Offering a flexible working pattern
- Allowing the employee to take breaks at set times for lunch
- Allowing more breaks for the employee to test their blood, eat, or take medication
- Allow the employee to attend medical appointments and any diabetes education courses
