    The aim of this qualitative study is to explore practice nurses’ perceptions
    of their role in providing diabetes care. Semi-structured interviews were
    conducted with 15 purposively selected general practice nurses working in
    the Northwest of England. Five main themes were identified through coding
    and demonstrate that definitions of diabetes service are complex and
    that variations exist in perceptions of care. The main findings give an
    insight into practice nurses’ perceptions of their scope and level of practice
    in primary diabetes care. This research highlights practice nurses’ training
    needs in order to meet new national guidelines in diabetes care.
