What people say about Learning Zone

We value the honest opinions of our users, so we keep your feedback anonymous:

“If you were newly diagnosed or were only just trying to get a hold of your diabetes, Learning Zone provides a wealth of information about different sections of life which the user can explore. This could also be beneficial for parents or companions who support a diabetic in their life.”
"When you're diagnosed, you get fed an endless amount of info and there is an overwhelming amount to process. Learning Zone gives you the right and vital info in small chunks to allow you to take it all in. The quiz also helps you check how much of the info you actually absorbed."
“I like that there are interactive quizzes on Learning Zone to test yourself and learn from your incorrect answers. My favourite thing is that it asks questions about your own life first (such as whether you have problems with binge - eating or how active you are) so it feels like you're getting a more personal experience.”

"Learning Zone is a very worthwhile resource which has resulted from extensive research, involving a diverse range of people with diabetes. The design is imaginative, the editorial content gives support contact details and tips, and the cleverest part is the use of vlogs."

BMA Patient Information Awards 2019

"I would highly recommend Learning Zone. It's very innovative use of content provides a truly person-centred user experience. If the aim of patient information is to support patients through a journey, this is the most likely resource to do that that I've seen in a long time."
