Diabetes UK is the leading charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of every person affected by or at risk of diabetes.

There are currently 3.8 million people in the UK with diabetes, including an estimated 850,000 people who have Type 2 diabetes but do not know it.

We help people manage their diabetes effectively by providing information, advice and support.

We campaign with people with diabetes and with healthcare professionals to improve the quality of care across the UK’s health services.

We fund pioneering research into care, cure and prevention for all types of diabetes.

We work to stem the rising tide of Type 2 diabetes – through risk assessment, early diagnosis, and by communicating how healthy lifestyle choices can help many people avoid or delay its onset.

Public involvement in research

The Service Improvement team work with people with diabetes and help local, regional and national NHS organisations to gain insight into the health needs of local diabetes populations from all parts of the community, including those who are hard to reach and those who do not currently access diabetes services.

We support the NHS to develop structured and sustainable approaches to patient involvement.   

We bring together healthcare professionals, commissioners and people with diabetes to work together to improve services using patient feedback.  

We ensure that our involvement approaches are tailored to the diabetes community and the service improvement goals of the organisation, from delivering a one-off event to a long term strategic partnership.
