Printed Thesis Information:


The incidence and prevalence of diabetes mellitus (diabetes) is increasing globally. The majority of people have type 2 diabetes, initially managed by lifestyle changes and the gradual introduction of oral, followed by subcutaneous, medications. Due to the increasing numbers of people with type 2 diabetes, different models of care management have been utilised within the United Kingdom. One Health Board within Scotland received funding to undertake a service redesign whereby the responsibility of care for people with type 2 diabetes was transferred from secondary care to primary care, with referral to specialist services based on clinical need.
The aim of this thesis is to present the body of published work on an evaluation research study on the change in service delivery for people with type 2 diabetes. The published works have arisen from two funded research studies resulting in one peer reviewed report and five peer-reviewed papers published in international journals.
