Healthier You - NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme
Every 2 minutes, someone finds out that they have Type 2 diabetes.
There are currently 200,000 new Type 2 diabetes diagnoses every year. If trends persist, one in three people will be obese by 2034 and one in 10 will develop Type 2 diabetes.
There is strong international evidence which demonstrates how behavioural interventions, which support people to maintain a healthy weight and be more active, can significantly reduce the risk of developing the condition.
The Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme identifies those at high risk and refers them onto a behaviour change programme.
Our programme is funded by the NHS and free to service users.
