Diabetes care for children and young adults in the North East and North Cumbria

Do you live in the North East or North Cumbria? Have you recently experienced moving from children's to adult diabetes services in the region, or will you be moving soon?


Whether you are a young adult living with diabetes, or a parent or carer for a child or young adult living with diabetes, the move from children’s diabetes services into adult diabetes care can be daunting and difficult at times. This move is often called transition. There can be variations in the care and support available to young adults and their families during this time and unfortunately this means that they sometimes find it difficult to access the care and support that they need or would like to be available.

In the North East and North Cumbria, the Children and Young People’s and Adult Diabetes Clinical Networks are working together, with support from Diabetes UK and young adults and their families, to gather your experiences and insights into transition services and the support you want to see available.

How you can help

To help ensure the right care and support is available, we are asking young adults aged 16 and over, parents and carers children or young adults with diabetes involved in diabetes care across this region, to complete a survey and tell us what they think.

Your views and experiences are really important. Your responses will be used to help understand what transition services are currently like, what people want from their transition services and how improvements can be made across the North East and North Cumbria area.

If you live in the North East or North Cumbria and would like to take part, you can take part by filling in the most relevant survey to you.
