About Us

Our Mission

DigiBete is a 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. We aim to increase Education, Awareness and Training for Type 1 but we are not a substitute for your own diabetes specialist HCPs.

We are proud to be 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:

We are 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

We are fair – this is a free to access site for everyone; no registrations, no payment

We are collaborative – we are all one team with a common purpose, working in partnership with patients and families

We are accountable – our content is all co-designed with patients and families, clinically accurate, peer reviewed and in line with the NHS Digital safety standard SCCI0129 

We are empowering – we celebrate 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.
