Project title: Identifying support needs among people with diabetes during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic

Responsible researcher details: Dr Sarah Sauchelli Toran, NIHR Bristol Biomedical Research Centre-Nutrition, University of Bristol,

The NIHR Bristol Biomedical Research Centre is working with Diabetes UK to better understand and provide the type of support people with diabetes need during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Please read the information below before taking part.

Who can take part?

Adults aged 18 years or over who have a diagnosis of diabetes. Parents, carers or partners of people with diabetes can also take part.

What will I be asked to do?

You will be asked to complete a survey with questions about your well-being, the sources you use to obtain information/advice/support, your opinions on the advice you are receiving, and any improvements you would like to see in relation to guidance/advice.

This survey is completely anonymous. You are free to withdraw at any point. Any responses you have provided up to that point will be kept. This is because once entered, responses are automatically stored. As the survey is anonymous, we will not be able to extract the responses you have already provided. As sponsor for this study, the University of Bristol will manage your data securely in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation for health and care research, and in accordance to the Data Protection Act 1998.

The information collected from this survey will be used to help Diabetes UK and may be used to support other research in the future. As part of a collaborative research approach to tackle the effects of coronavirus COVID-19, the data may be shared anonymously with other researchers.

Survey responses will be grouped according to diabetes type. This will enable Diabetes UK to provide support that is tailored to the specific needs of people with different types of diabetes.
