The post involves close liaison with staff from participating medical practices and community pharmacies who will be supporting patient identification and recruitment processes.  The trial involves community pharmacists signposting patients to an app which is designed to help the patient work with their pharmacist, GP and friends and family to get better outcomes from their medication prescribed for type 2 diabetes.  This app is being trialled in 150 people in the UK and 150 people in the Netherlands.  The project will comprise a first stage of testing our methods for three months and then patient recruit patients for six months and follow up for six months.  Alongside the main trial will be a process evaluation to investigate fidelity of intervention delivery and the mediators of change.
