You will be part of the NIHR funded DIAMONDS Programme, (Diabetes and Mental Illness, Improving Outcomes and Self-management) which is evaluating a new supported self-management intervention to improve diabetes care and outcomes for people with severe mental illness and developing new learning relevant to other long-term conditions.
