Digibete is a newly launched website / video platform to share videos and educational resources about Type 1 Diabetes. The content is designed to help support children, young people and families self manage their own diabetes by extending the reach of clinical teams online. The aim to increase Education, Awareness and Training for Type 1 but not a substitute for your own diabetes specialist HCPs.
This is a true collaboration between a clinical team and a parent led initiative. The creation of this site together is a reflection of the wider values of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust:
The site is patient centred – this site is for all children, young people and families living with diabetes. The content of the site will evolve in response to patients’ requests
There is a free to access site for everyone; no registrations, no payment
The team is collaborative – we are all one team with a common purpose, working in partnership with patients and families
The team is accountable – the content is all co-designed with patients and families, clinically accurate, peer reviewed and in line with the NHS Digital safety standard SCCI0129
The site is meant to be empowering celebrating positivity and success by sharing stories.
Whilst there is a clinical team behind the DigiBete site, no personal advice can be given. Individuals should always contact their own diabetes team for information.
