FREE apps for young people with diabetes! Help focus your next consultation on what YOU want to discuss. 

Try out one of the free apps (mobile app or website) on offer for your upcoming diabetes clinic appointment & receive £20 Amazon voucher for reviewing it!

This 1 year pilot project is exploring how apps might help prepare young people for their diabetes clinic appointments. It is run by Plymouth Univeristy, Peninsula College of Medicine & Dentistry & funded by Diabetes UK. We are inviting young people aged 16-25  with T1 diabetes living in the UK and a clinic appointment before the end of Feb 2013 to try out and review one of the six apps that were designed and created by other young people with diabetes.

Our website offers more information at and we are offering a £20 Amazon voucher as our thank you to those who take part.

A big thank you to everyone who developed an app for the Diabetes App Challenge!! Please continue using the discussion forum to hear from those trying out your app
