JDRF’s Covid and Beyond report reveals the impact of the Covid pandemic upon lives already affected by type 1 diabetes.
We commissioned social research to understand the varying pandemic experiences of different people affected by type 1 diabetes in the UK.
The experiences shared for the report depict an enormous withdrawal of NHS services during the pandemic, leading to starkly unequal access to type 1 diabetes care.
The scale of our quantitative research involving more than 1,000 people, combined with the scope of our qualitative research with 40 individuals representing groups hardest hit by Covid, allowed us to contrast varying experiences of the pandemic.

It also reveals variations in the experiences of people who have lived with the condition for different lengths of time.
The findings of our Covid and Beyond report, launched in October 2021, are supported by recommendations that point the way for the NHS to build back an integrated type 1 diabetes service that optimises quality of care and support.
JDRF’s recommendations are:
