London-based pw T1 #diabetes (&T2 on insulin) wanted for focus group on tech / software

When I worked at Diabetes UK I’d not have posted this in case it would have implied endorsement-by-association, so just to be clear this has nothing to do with them. There are good reasons for being a bit cautious with focus groups though because it’s not *always* clear which company’s behind the request, or what support might be available if it’s needed (for example something might come up in the discussion that raises worries for someone, and there might not be follow-up support available).

Anyway I’m sure you can make your own mind up about this 🙂
