Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week 2020

Prevention Week is not taking place from Monday 20th April to Sunday 26th April as planned. We will update the page when we have more information from NHS England one of our campaign partners. 


There are 12.3 million people in the UK at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. But there are simple things you can do to change this.

That's why we're raising awareness of the risk of developing type 2 and how to reduce it.
