This study is looking to understand people’s views on how text messages about diet and physical activity might support people with type 2 diabetes to better manage their condition.
Previous research from the team highlighted how people with type 2 diabetes would value additional support and was used to develop a library of evidence-based messages.
The research is being carried out by a team of researchers based at The University of Manchester.
Patients have more choices about how their hospital care is provided than ever before. If the NHS is funding the care, patients can be treated in NHS or private hospitals. Patients paying privately, or via health insurance, also have the option to be treated in NHS or private hospitals. There is a need to ensure that processes across the healthcare system are more effective and that information is aligned across the NHS and private sector.
Feedback from this project will be used to understand the shared arrangements between care providers, and to identify opportunities for future improvements to the quality and safety of patient care.
It is being carried out by a team of researchers at the universities of Manchester, York and Birmingham and is funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research.
