Healthcare professionals and members of the public are being asked to take part in a major survey looking at type 2 diabetes.

The aim of the Diabetes UK project is to find out what the biggest questions and concerns are about the condition.

The charity is keen to make sure the survey is representative of all people with type 2 diabetes, including ethnic minorities.

Healthcare professionals are being urged to direct their patients to the survey as well as filling it out themselves.

‘Vitally important’

Dr Elizabeth Robertson, director of research for Diabetes UK, said: “I would urge all healthcare professionals with an interest in type 2 diabetes to take part.

“Diabetes UK has been a pioneer of research for over 80 years and we have been directly involved in research breakthroughs that have changed our understanding and treatment of diabetes forever.

“We know it’s vitally important that the research we fund truly reflects the needs of people with diabetes and those that care for them.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for people who care for people with type 2 diabetes to help direct research to where it’s needed most and potentially deliver life-changing results.”

The survey will be available until August 2016 and is open to healthcare professionals, people with type 2 diabetes and carers.
