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.

Feedback is very important in helping to shape this piece of work

In addition to our permanent members of staff we may have up to three junior doctors attached to our practice.  These doctors are with us from 4 to 6 months and this forms and important part of their training.

You may notice that these doctors need to discuss your case with a more senior doctor, and will from time to time video their surgery or have another doctor sit in on their surgery.  This is all part of their training and the assessment process. You will be asked for your permission at all times if your consultation is being recorded or if another doctor will be sitting in.
