The ELSA Study (Early Surveillance for Autoimmune Diabetes) is a study designed to explore how feasible and acceptable a new system designed to identify children, who are at risk of type 1 diabetes. GP Practices across the West Midlands are being asked to act as Participant Identification Centres (known as PIC sites). High Oak Surgery and Chapel Street Medical Centre will be looking for eligible families to receive information about the study; those interested will be asked to contact the study team to see if their child can take part.
