They are searching for the research priorities of people with Type 2 diabetes, their carers and healthcare professionals

It's so important that the responses received reflect the broad remit and experience of healthcare professionals that work across diabetes, so please take part.

They want to hear about your experiences of treating people with Type 2 diabetes: please tell them the questions about Type 2 diabetes you most want answered by research.
