Diabetes advice and support

During 2017, we were awarded with some national funding to help to develop the services which support people across Barnsley to manage their diabetes.

The aims of the funding were:

  • To improve access to structured education for people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes in Barnsley
  • To help people achieve their target HbA1c, blood pressure and cholesterol range.
  • To improve people's experience of the advice and support they receive from the local NHS for their diabetes. 

We now want to evaluate how this funding has been spent and if the above aims were met from a patient perspective.

We would also like to find out what you think local diabetes advice, support and services should look like in the future.
