We’ve been working with young people to transform how local health diabetes services are designed and delivered for their age group.
CLAHRC researchers based at the University of East London worked with local young people to understand the options and barriers they face when given a diagnosis of diabetes and using NHS services.
We recruited a mixed young research team – in terms of age, ethnicity, faith-identities and backgrounds – who worked together over one year to help commissioners and providers better understand and address the options and barriers of delivering a ‘perfect’ care pathway.
You can see the results of this work in our latest BITE – a postcard summary of a CLAHRC research paper.
This is part of our wider work to co-design community-based diabetic services responsive to the needs of children and young people
