Our international research programme means that life-changing treatments and developments for type 1 diabetes are in clinical trials around the world.
As new treatments become available, we want to make sure that they are delivered through the NHS to people with type 1 diabetes as quickly as possible.
To achieve this we provide evidence and patient input to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN). These are the two organisations that evaluate which medicines should be prescribed and paid for by the NHS, and provide guidelines to doctors about best treatment practices.
As well as providing input for NICE and SIGN treatment reviews ourselves, we work with industry and researchers to ensure that they are producing appropriate evidence for these two bodies.
We also make sure that patients’ views are represented by asking people with type 1 diabetes to take part in reviews, and we help to keep people with type 1 up to date about the best and latest treatment options so that they can discuss them with their healthcare team.
We are a member of the Medical Technology Group (MTG), a coalition of patient groups, research charities and medical device manufacturers working to improve access to cost-effective medical technologies for everyone who needs them.
In 2018 we merged with diabetes technology advocacy group INPUT to address some of the problems which delay adoption of new treatments and technology through the NHS. We also work closely with partners like Diabetes UK to advocate for faster access to technology.
We’ve written a letter to Gillian Keegan MP, Secretary of State for Education, asking her to make exemptions to the Government’s policy on banning mobile phones in schools. We thought you might like to read it.
