Healthier You is a joint partnership between Diabetes UK, Public Health England and NHS England. The programme is designed to help people who are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes to change their habits and reduce their risk.
Your free, local Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) will provide valuable support to help you put your health back in your hands by providing a range of personalised support to help you eat well and tips on weight loss and physical activity.
Although the programme is normally delivered in groups at different times and locations, right now it’s offered over telephone or group video conference, or online through apps and websites. The programme is open to people who:
- live in England
- are not pregnant
- do not have diabetes currently
- are aged 18 - 79
- and have received a score of over 16 when using the Know Your Risk tool.
It is also important to discuss this result with your GP practice and get a blood test.
If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, the NHS DPP is not available. Find out more about preventing type 2 diabetes if you think you are at high risk.
