Joining Help BEAT Diabetes
Joining Help BEAT Diabetes is free. When you sign up, we will ask you for your contact details, type of diabetes and year of diagnosis. We will explain the different ways research is conducted and you can tell us which of these you are interested in.
It is always your decision whether you take part in any research we tell you about. Your participation is completely voluntary and you can withdraw from a study or from the Research for the Future database at any time without it affecting your diabetes care.
Any information you provide is stored on a secure NHS database kept in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act (2018). Only the Research for the Future team have access to it. Your details will never be passed to anyone else.
