Help Beat Diabetes Campaign

Help Diabetes is a National Institute for Health Research initiative to encourage people with diabetes to get involved with research.  Together we could help reduce the impact of diabetes on the population.

The campaign aims to match diabetes patients with research studies appropriate for them. Diabetes research can help find new treatments and medication for patients. You can register your interest to take part in diabetes studies by completing the form here: www.researchforthefuture.nihr.ac.uk or you can text your name and 'research' to 81400.  The NHS contact centre will then call you back. 

If you register you are only expressing your interest in clinical studies and are not agreeing to take part in specific studies at this point.

Diabetes is a common life-long condition.  There are 2.8 million people in the UK who have been diagnosed with diabetes and around 800,000 more who have the condition but don't know.  By 2025, it is estimated that over 4 million people will have diabetes.

Manchester Royal Infirmary had the first dedicated Diabetes Centre in the country, which opened in April 1988.
