INPUT Patient Advocacy
Lesley volunteered for INPUT from 2005 and took over its leadership when the founder, John Davis MBE, retired in 2011. Now a registered charity, INPUT has a mission to help people access diabetes technology and support from the NHS, including insulin pumps, smart glucose meters and continuous glucose monitoring. INPUT can be contacted via its website, freephone, Twitter and Facebook, and numerous events. Each year, their website is visited by over 60,000 visitors and they deal with over 400 one-to-one enquiries.
Lesley was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes aged 2 in 1968 and has used an insulin pump for 15 years.
