Give us your views so that we can improve diabetes services in East Kent

East Kent Health and Care Partership are running five focus groups later in May to help shape improvements to diabetes services in East Kent.

Your views will really help us understand what people living with diabetes really think, feel and need, and help us shape service improvements in East Kent. Your participation will also really help us add important detail to the feedback we gained through our recent questionnaire.

Who should attend?

This session is open to anyone living with diabetes (including type 1, type 2 and gestational) as well as anyone who lives with someone with diabetes.

How will the focus groups work?

These short focus groups will involve a relaxed and informal conversation about different aspects of diabetes. You will be encouraged to share your thoughts throughout, but you will be under no pressure to contribute.

How will it be delivered?

We will be using Zoom, which is free to access. Once you have registered, we will send you a link that you will need to click on at the time of the focus group.
