We will hold an interview with you and your child in a place and at a time that is convenient for you both. We will ask about your child’s health and your family medical history. It will take about an hour. If your child with type 1 diabetes agrees we will take a sample of his/her blood (14 ml, about a tablespoon). We will record your address so that we can contact you and your child to tell you about specific trials of new treatments or studies into diabetes, as they arise. We will pay travel costs if you have to make a special visit to see us.
We will collect extra information relating to your child’s health at diagnosis/now and in the future from information about him/her that is held by the NHS (e.g. medical notes) using your child’s NHS number.
