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.
