Interventions This study is a randomised controlled trial. Patients will be recruited from the diabetes clinic at St George's Hospital to obtain consents. In the initial visit the demographic and the clinical data are collected in a standard proformas. The patients are then invited for a second visit to be randomised to either RTTM or conventional care.

The patients in the RTTM group are trained on how to self-monitor their blood glucose and weekly blood pressure using devices to transmit the data wirelessly via a mobile phone to a central server in St George's Hospital which are viewed by clinicians using a web-based tool.

The patients in the conventional care (control) group will receive their management entirely from their general practitioner and/or practice nurse in the community.

All patients from both groups will be invited for reassessment of baseline parameters after 6 months at St George's Hospital by the researcher.
Primary outcome measure(s) 1. Improvement of blood pressure, measured at baseline and 6 months
2. Good diabetes control, measured at baseline and 6 months
Secondary outcome measure(s) No secondary outcome measures.
