Since the pandemic, people living with diabetes have told us they’ve faced cancelled appointments and struggled to speak to their healthcare teams. This needs to change. No one should have to manage diabetes alone. We know how important it is that people living with diabetes get the right care and support, but we need your help to make sure everyone – especially those with the power to make change – knows it too.
That’s why we’re asking you to share our quick survey, which is open from 25 January until the 20 February. Learning about the experiences of people living with diabetes over the last year will help us fight for diabetes care to be a priority in 2023. Whether it’s hearing about cancelled appointments or people not getting the emotional support they need, we’ll be taking the results from this survey straight to the Government.
We already know that when we come together, we can make a real difference. Thanks to thousands of people who shared their experiences last year, our Diabetes is Serious campaign had a huge impact in 2022. We were able to tell nearly every MP just how serious diabetes is and worked with many of them to submit letters and questions to the Government to make diabetes care a priority.
Please share our survey with your contacts, to help us keep diabetes at the top of the agenda: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/8R1O64/
