Diabetes Information Leaflets

We publish a series of professionally authored leaflets on diabetes and related health which are freely available as pdf download, audio file or as hard copy upon request.

DRWF is committed to providing quality and relevant patient information for all people with diabetes. We have achieved Department of Health Information Standard accreditation on the Diabetes Wellness News and patient information leaflet series, which assures readers that our information is trustworthy and reliable.

In line with this commitment we review and update all publications covered by the scope of the Standard as necessary to ensure they are fit for purpose. Each leaflet's review date is clearly printed on its back page. Source references are available on request.

Leaflets are available to download. If you are having problems viewing them you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader here for free.
