Let's Prevent Diabetes

Let’s Prevent Diabetes is a new group education programme which aims to identify people at high risk of Type 2 diabetes and work with them to prevent or delay the condition.

People found to have pre-diabetes – where blood sugar levels are higher than normal – during their NHS Health Check are being invited to attend the new programme at the nine GP surgeries in the area.

The programme is six hours long, attended by eight to ten people and led by two trained educators. Discussions cover the risks and implications of developing Type 2 diabetes as well as how to make lifestyle changes to prevent its development.
