Help shape the future of diabetes care in Leeds

The NHS in Leeds would like to know what staff think should be included in the new diabetes strategy for the city.

There are currently about 44,000 people in Leeds living with diabetes and a further 32,000 at high risk of developing it. By 2034, it’s estimated that one in 10 people in the city will have the condition.

If diabetes, in particular Type 2, continues to increase as predicted, treating it may account for 15% of the NHS total budget by 2030.

The new strategy will outline plans to reduce the number of people in Leeds who develop the condition, while also looking at how they can support people with diabetes to live a fulfilling life.

Anyone with an interest in shaping the future of diabetes care is invited to take part in the survey.
