Patient survey: Diabetes education for people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes

Dedicated diabetes education sessions happen all across the country, however attendance is low.  We would like to understand why this is, and what steps we can make to improve the uptake.  Current uptake nationally is approximately 7% for people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.   We know diabetes education is one of two diabetes indicators Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) are measured on and this is reported in the CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework. 

We are inviting patients to complete a survey about diabetes education to provide invaluable experience and insight into what the incentives and challenges are as well as considering different options for delivery of the education.  

We are inviting people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes to complete this survey. To complete, please click on link below:

The survey is voluntary and anonymous.  It should take a few minutes to complete and the survey will close on Monday 10th September 2018.

Paper copy surveys are available.  Should people with diabetes wish to talk to someone about this survey please contact NHS Northern England Diabetes Clinical Network team by email england.northerndiabetes@nhs.net or telephone number Tel: 0113 825 3307.
