New Centre To Solve Riddle Of Morse's Killer 

Author Colin Dexter will reveal what eventually kills Inspector Morse when he opens a unique new national centre dedicated to caring for diabetics at the University of Warwick next month.

Mr Dexter, himself a diabetic, will explain how Inspector Morse dies as a result of complications relating to diabetes, and how a centre such as Warwick Diabetes Care will make a real difference to the treatment options available in the UK.

Warwick Diabetes Care, which will be launched on 15 November, will spearhead improvements in the care and treatment of the country's two million diabetics.

It will deliver a range of courses and degree programmes for health care professionals. More than 1,000 professionals in diabetes care have already signed up for courses with the centre.

The new centre will also carry out research into diabetes care and will provide easy access for health care professionals to this new research, as well as other resources and information that will help them to continuously improve the standards of care.

More than one million people in the UK are diagnosed diabetics - and a further million suffer from the effects of the illness without realising that diabetes is at the heart of their illness.

Professor Pierre Lefèvbre, advisor on diabetes to the World Health Organisation, said:

"The establishment of Warwick Diabetes Care is the first time ever we have had an initiative for improving the care of diabetes patients with an infrastructure that links GPs and hospital based staff."

Professor Massimo Massi-Benedetti, Chairman of the International Diabetes Federation's Europe region, added:

"Warwick Diabetes Care is a unique initiative that will provide a model for all of Europe."
