Your local Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

A record number of people in the UK are living with Type 2 diabetes. This figure has more than doubled since 1996. Sadly many people will experience potentially preventable complications because of diabetes, simply because they don’t know enough about their condition and how to manage it.

The good news is if you're at risk of Type 2 diabetes there are lots of small changes you can make to prevent diabetes from developing in the first place. 

The first thing to do is find out if you are at risk. And if you are, don't worry. Working with our digital partner, Oviva, we deliver tailored, personalised support to reduce people's risk of Type 2 diabetes. 

Find out if you’re one of over 5 million people in the UK who are at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.


There are different options for how you take part in the nine-month programme, depending on your preferences and needs:


  • Group based sessions: provided in a local community venue, convenient to you, led by one of our qualified Health Coaches, with the chance to engage with others to help you reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes
  • One to one digital: remote support accessed via Oviva's app, with support from a Health Coach via messenger and phone appointments
  • Tailored remote service: you may be offered the option of attending group based support entirely remotely via Microsoft Teams. This service is for those with: hearing impairment requiring British Sign Language; visual impairment; Bangladeshi or Pakistani backgrounds who require a specific cultural and language tailored service; women with a previous diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes.
