New Diabetes Publication
The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland has recently published a new report: “Diabetes: my information, my support”. The report details people’s lived experience of diabetes information and support in Scotland, with information captured through a series of focus groups, a workshop and an online survey.
My Diabetes My Way has been referenced throughout the report as a useful source of information, encouraging and motivating people towards goals and offering access to diabetes records. You can access the full report at the following link:
