      Question Health: Diabetes

      Question Health is a televised debate series shining a light on some of the most concerning health issues affecting people in the North West. For our third event, we’re turning our attention to diabetes. Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. It can affect anyone at any age and it is common and on the increase. It is estimated that 1 in every 16 people has the disease, either diagnosed or undiagnosed. The event format will be similar to BBC’s Question Time, with pre-set audience questions leading our expert panel’s discussion; they’ll be delving into the condition - its causes, preventions, treatments and the impact it has on people with diabetes and their families. There will be filming and photography of the audience and the expert panel throughout this event, therefore your consent is required for footage/images to be used for marketing and broadcast purposes. The film crew will consist of students and staff from UCLan’s television, media, continuing drama and film production courses. This is a free event and light refreshments will be provided on arrival. Take a look at the coverage from our last event Question Health: The Big C. FAQs Car parking: There is free parking on site with off-road parking also available. Filming and photography: With this debate being pre-recorded for television, there will be filming and photography throughout.  When registering you will be asked to give permission for filming and photography of you to be used by the University for marketing and television broadcast purposes. These images/footage may be used in both on and offline publications, public relations and advertising, such as social media, brochures, information leaflets, adverts, posters and other formats for the promotion of the University and of University courses at its partner institutions. Floor management: With this debate being pre-recorded for television, there will be some stoppages for logistical reasons and direction from the Floor Manager for things such as audience applause. Broadcast of the debate: The debate will be shown on a Sky Channel.  The date and further details are still to be confirmed.  Those who attend will be contacted at a later date with information.  Due to editing and programme scheduling, it's possible that the broadcast date may be several months later. Questions for the panel: Please let us know when registering online what question you would like to ask the panel.  All questions will be collated and edited by the organisers and you will be notified in advance of the debate if yours has been selected.  Questions will be printed onto cards and given to you when you arrive at the event. Those asking questions will have designated seats, so they can be identified by the film crew. Accessibility: The building and ground floor venue are fully accessible. The venue has tiered seating and the audience enters from the bottom of the seated area. Please indicate when registering if you need a space for a wheelchair or if you are unable to use stairs.
