6-Month home-based exercise study
In this study we are investigating the effect of 2 different supported exercise interventions on basic health outcomes in patients with Type 2 diabetes. The entire intervention can be completed in your own home, including a variety of health measures.

The MOTIVATE T2D Research Study
You will be supported through a personalised 6-month exercise and physical activity programme
Exercise Consultation Meetings
