“It’s been a huge privilege to understand what matters most to people with Type 2 diabetes. These priorities are a really important step in helping us achieve our goal of maximising the benefit of research for people with diabetes. The priorities will allow us, and researchers across the UK, to think strategically to deliver the knowledge that could significantly improve the lives of people with Type 2 diabetes in the future.”

Dr Elizabeth Robertson, Director of Research, Diabetes UK


The Diabetes (Type 2) PSP Top 10 was published in October 2017.
