Healthwatch Cumbria is working alongside the Cumbria Diabetes Service User Group (CDSUG) to examine the experience of diabetes service users across Cumbria.
Sarah Allison, Health and Wellbeing Manager for Healthwatch Cumbria, said:
‘HWC has been made aware of concerns about the low numbers of people having regular diabetes health checks. Not having regular health checks can lead to very serious health issues and we’re working with the Diabetes Service User Group to gain a better understanding of the challenges in accessing health checks across the county’.
We would like to hear from everyone living with diabetes. Please share your experience by completing a short 10 minute survey: www.surveymonkey.com/r/cumbriadiabetes
Please help us spread the word and pass this onto any friends or family who have experience of diabetes services!
