NHS England has issued a questionnaire to help shape a new website for adults with type 2 diabetes.

Healthcare professionals as well as adults with type 2 diabetes and carers for someone living with the condition have been invited to take part in the consultation.

Feedback from the 10-question survey will be used to inform the online platform, which will represent the first service of its kind from the NHS.

The website will be put together by NHS England and Improvement, Public Health England and Diabetes UK. It will include:

  • Provide education and information about type 2 diabetes and its treatments
  • Offer content on managing your mood and stress
  • Help with adopting and maintaining healthy behaviours, including diet and exercise

A spokesperson for NHS England said: “The new offer, will mean people with type 2 diabetes have evidence-based information and support available at the touch of a button, via an online portal, giving them convenient and quick help to deal with the physical and mental challenges of diabetes.

“The resource will make the right advice available from home, work or on the move, helping people manage their health and wellbeing independently, potentially preventing the need for extra medical attention or the condition becoming worse.

“The survey will take less than five minutes to complete and your answers will help to shape the new website. Responses will be completely anonymous and there are no right or wrong answers.”

It will be open until Monday, September 2, 2019. To take part, click here.
