Improving diabetes services

We are committed to improving diabetes services so that all local people can access high quality care no matter where they live. As a result, we are developing plans to improve services, building on what already works well and creating a more consistent and effective approach to diabetes care across the whole of Sussex.

However, we do not want to make any changes to services without involving you, our service users. We are keen to understand your experiences and gain your views on what a good service would look like for you.

Have your say on diabetes services

If you have Type 1, Type 2, gestational or any other type of diabetes, or are a carer or family member of someone who does, we would like to hear your thoughts.

You can let us know what you think in several ways:

  • Complete a short survey – we have published a survey to help us understand what local people think of existing services and hear ideas about how services could be improved. The survey will be closing on 17 July 2022. Complete the diabetes survey
  • Join an online focus group – we are running four online focus groups for service users to enable us to talk directly to local people about what matters to them and discuss ideas for improvement in more detail. If you would like to join one of these focus groups, please email Please be aware that the number of spaces we have on the focus groups are limited.
  • Have a telephone interview – if you are unable to attend one of our online focus groups for any reason, we would be happy to hear your views via a telephone interview. If you would like to arrange a telephone interview, please email  Please be aware that the number of spaces we have for interviews are limited.
