Southwark is one of the first places in the country to offer a new evidenced based behavioural programme to help people avoid developing Type 2 diabetes.
Over the next 12 months, all people who have already been identified as at risk of diabetes will be sent a letter offering a place on the programme. Suitable people will continue to be identified via the NHS Health Checks programme or their GP.
Patients who are referred get tailored, personalised help to reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes including education on healthy eating and lifestyle, help to lose weight and bespoke physical exercise programmes, all of which together have been proven to reduce the risk of developing the disease.
