We are committed to improving diabetes services so that all local people can access high quality care no matter where they live.
As a result, we are developing plans to improve services, building on what already works well and creating a more consistent and effective approach to diabetes care across the whole of Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge.
However, we do not want to make any changes to services without involving you, our service users. We are keen to understand your experiences and gain your views on what a good service would look like for you.
Have your say on diabetes services
If you live, or are registered with a GP, in Barking and Dagenham, Havering or Redbridge and have Type 1, Type 2, gestational or any other type of diabetes, or you are a carer or family member of someone who does, we would like to hear your thoughts.
You can let us know what you think in several ways:
Complete a short survey
We have published a survey to help us understand what local people think of existing services and hear ideas about how services could be improved. Please follow this link to complete the diabetes survey
The survey will be closing on 29 April 2022.
Join an online focus group
We are running four online focus groups for service users to enable us to talk directly to local people about what matters to them and discuss ideas for improvement in more detail.
