We partnered with Gloucestershire CCG to explore what needs to happen to increase access to services among people who are most deprived and from a black & minority ethnic backgrounds who have type 2 diabetes.

What we did:

We conducted 31 depth interviews:

  • 1 in 3 didn’t speak English as a first language
  • 3 in 4 from a black or minority ethnic background:
  • 2 in 3 lived in Gloucester City

What we found:

What are the barriers to accessing annual reviews and Structured Education?

  • Fear of judgement
  • Don’t believe it will add value
  • Irrelevant advice and content
  • Limited to local venues

What support and information do people need?

  • Expert advice, accessible content
  • Choice of face-face groups
  • With people like me
  • Women-only

What we recommended:

Education sessions in the community that are culturally-specific for target groups … must be co-designed with people in these communities, for these communities!
