Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week 2023
Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week is taking place from Monday 22nd May to Sunday 28th May this year. Diabetes UK joins NHS England as proud campaign partners for this annual awareness week.
For this year’s Prevention Week campaign, NHS England has created a digital toolkit which includes everything you need to support the week digitally, including social media posts, animations, web banners and more.
There are 13.6 million people in the UK at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. But for many people there are steps you can take to reduce your risk.
A free, simple and potentially life-saving assessment to better understand individual risk of type 2 diabetes can be carried out at any of the more than 370 Tesco Pharmacies across the UK, or online via our Know Your Risk tool. Anyone who completes an assessment will be directed to free advice and information on the help and support available to manage their risk. In addition, as part of its commitment to help customers make healthier food choices, Tesco has also produced a series of healthy and budget-friendly recipes for Prevention Week, approved by Diabetes UK, which are available through the Tesco Real Food website.
