Cumbrian diabetics wanted to take part in research campaign

Diabetes sufferers in Cumbria can get involved in a new campaign which could help them take part in the latest clinical research.

The North West Diabetes Research Network (NW DRN) is part of a campaign that is asking people with diabetes for permission to be approached about clinical research studies that may be interesting to them.

Professor Martin Gibson, clinical lead of the NW DRN, said it was a “brand new approach.”

He said: “It means that people with diabetes can be contacted directly if a study becomes available which might suit them.

“This means that clinical trials can be set up much faster, which is ideal for diabetes research.”

The campaign – ‘Help Diabetes’ – is taking place in three regions of England: the north west, the south west, and north east London.

The programme, which is approved by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), aims to improve the treatment diabetes patients receive now and in the future by accelerating the introduction of new medicines and treatments for everyone.
