You are invited you to take part in a social science research study being conducted by Mark Lucherini, a PhD student, from the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences at the University of Glasgow.

The research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) it is titled; ‘The Everyday Geographies of Living With Diabetes’ and explores the ways in which diabetes affects the day-to-day life of a person, for instance when at home, at work, out with friends or family, travelling on public transport and the many other situations that occur during day-to-day life.

The aim of the project is to compile these experiences and present a picture of the way that a person with diabetes moves through, and interacts with the world. Hopefully this research will give many people the opportunity to talk about the day-to-day struggles, stresses, difficulties and issues that living with diabetes can cause.

You do not have to provide any personal details and can submit the questionnaire anonymously. However any personal details you do chose to provide such as names, telephone numbers or email addresses will be held confidentially by me and no-one else will have access to them. When using information in the thesis any names will be changed and any names of other people mentioned will also be changed. Names of places, such as hospitals or GP’s offices, will also be changed. Anonymised data from the questionnaire will be used to write a PhD thesis and social science publications.
