As part of the DHI’s diabetes portfolio, an online survey was distributed through SurveyMonkey in Summer 2022. This survey aimed to offer insights into the key diabetes challenges faced by NHS Scotland and to identify new ideas for digital innovations in diabetes care. This brief report provides an executive summary of key findings from the survey, with a focus on the themes which emerged across questions and respondent’s innovation ideas. A total of 275 people responded, consisting mostly of people with lived experience of diabetes or their families and NHS health and care professionals. Key themes throughout the survey included the importance of person-centred care, the need for mental health and wellbeing support for people living with diabetes, access to diabetes information and self-management resources, and widespread access to diabetes technologies. Respondents offered a variety of innovation ideas, covering areas such as establishing new models of care, enhancing digital connectivity, and improving people’s ability to self-manage.
