One of the central tenets of the St. Vincent declaration is that diabetic patients need "...sustained mprovement in health experience and a life approaching normal expectation in quality and quantity".

The aim of this three year Wellcome Trust Health Services Research Training Fellowship for Dr Josie Evans is to look at the quality of life in our patients with diabetes in Tayside. Over the next three years Josie aims to develop and evaluate a quality of life measure in a random sample of people with diabetes in Tayside.
