Speak Biographies 

Dr Matt Guy

Dr Matthew Guy works in the NHS as a Consultant Physicist and as a Service Designer. Matt’s NHS work is split between clinical imaging, scientific computing and helping clinicians and patients redesign healthcare services.

With a daughter diagnosed aged 3 with Type 1 Diabetes, Matt embraced the #WeAreNotWaiting community, looking to contribute to and safely use innovative Type 1 Diabetes technologies. Matt has made novel use of sound recognition applications to remotely monitor pump alarms and, building on the Community’s solutions, went on to establish the first remote monitoring of the Medtronic 600-series insulin pumps. With openAPS and Nightscout experience, Matt remains driven to help others – including healthcare professionals – make informed decisions around the healthcare choices they have to make for themselves and their loved ones.

Lesley Jordan

Lesley comes to us as part of our merger with INPUT Patient Advocacy. She knows all about diabetes technology access, and has been helping people access tech since 2005.  This year Lesley celebrates 50 years with type 1 and uses an insulin pump and CGM.
