About

After the unprecedented success of the inaugural national Insulin Safety Week (ISW), the campaign is making a triumphant return alongside Hypo Awareness Week (HAW), expanding its reach across the entire UK this year.

In 2018, a remarkable 343 sites participated in the first nationally-organised ISW, followed by a record-breaking 531 sites in 2019. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the campaign persevered and took place in July, underscoring the ongoing importance of insulin safety with 415 sites actively involved. In 2021, the campaign returned to its usual month with 516 sites, followed by 425 sites in 2022, and an impressive 529 sites in 2023. Heartfelt gratitude goes out to everyone who contributed to raising awareness of hypoglycaemia and insulin safety – your efforts are truly phenomenal.

While last year was exceptional, our focus is now fully directed towards this year’s ISW and HAW, accompanied by exciting new plans for both campaigns.
