Suffolk and North East Essex

Your local Suffolk and North East Essex Healthier You: Diabetes Prevention Programme is here to support people at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Programmes will be held in a range of locations across North East Essex, Ipswich & East Suffolk and West Suffolk. If there isn't a programme running in your area at the time of your referral, you will be placed onto the area waiting list until the next programme begins.
