NHS England and partners have launched the ‘Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme’ (NDPP) to help people who are at risk of developing Type 2.

 

In the UK, around 22,000 people with diabetes die early every year and five million people in England are at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

While Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented and is not linked to lifestyle, Type 2 is largely preventable through lifestyle changes.

The Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme identifies people at high risk and offers them support to make positive changes to their lifestyle to reduce their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

If you haven't been referred to Healthier You but you're interested in the service, the first step is to check if you're at high risk. Visit the 'Know Your Risk' tool at www.diabetes.org.uk/risk and find out if you are at risk of getting Type 2.

The programme is a partnership between NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK, working with private providers and local authorities. The service is being delivered in Northern England by Ingeus UK.
