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.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
