Are you satisfied with the level of diabetes care you are receiving?

Take our FREE survey for an assessment of your diabetes care and receive a personalised report in minutes.

  • Developed by specialist Diabetes consultants at The London Diabetes Centre, the form has been compiled to help review various levels of care across the diabetes spectrum.
  • Our free self-assessment survey will provide you with a detailed report that assesses the strengths of your current care plan, and identifies additional actions you may want to consider, which you may not be aware of, or which may not be covered by your current Diabetes care provider.
NOTE: This is not a clinical assessment tool, it does not attempt to diagnose your Diabetes and is not a replacement for clinical expertise. Based on many years of experience of our consultants, the survey assesses the components of your current care plan and helps you understand all the care options that may be relevant. Please be aware that a low score does not in any way imply that the care you are receiving is poor. It does mean however, that there may be additional actions you could consider to enhance your short or long term care.
