Diabetes My Way

The diabetes team from the Greater Manchester and Eastern Cheshire Strategic Clinical Networks (SCN) approached us to help recruit people to a project evaluating a new online system called Diabetes My Way.

The system was developed by specialist clinicians and connected patients’ NHS diabetes records with local information to provide personalised support and advice.  The team wanted to include people living with type 2 diabetes in the evaluation.

We invited people registered with our Help BEAT Diabetes campaign to take part.

Jennifer Schofield (GMEC SCN) said:

“Research for the Future helped us recruit patients into the study, these patients were able to provide feedback on the usability of the platform, helping to inform future upgrades. Having the support from Research for the Future throughout the project was invaluable, I would highly recommend their service.”
