NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) is a joint commitment from NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK, to deliver at scale evidence based behavioural interventions for individuals identified as being at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
The aim of the programme is to reduce people’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes across England. This will consequently improve the health of the nation whilst at the same time reducing a major financial burden on the system; one which goes beyond managing the condition itself, to the potential treatment of a number of associated conditions such as sight loss, kidney failure and stroke.
There will be sessions commencing 9th April in the Civic centre. Anyone wisking to join the course should arrange to see the Diabetes Specialist Nurse at the Avenue Surgery or contact the provider on 03335773010.
