National Diabetes Prevention Programme

Chair: Dr Caroline Sprake, GP and Primary Care Clinical Lead for Diabetes

There are currently five million people in England at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a leading cause of preventable sight loss in people of working age and is a major contributor to kidney failure, heart attack, and stroke. The National Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP) is a joint commitment from NHS England, Diabetes UK and Public Health. and aims to identify those people at high risk of developing diabetes. The role of Clinical Networks is to support delivery and implementation of this programme.

A Diabetes Prevention workshop was held on Wednesday 21st September 2016 and was an opportunity for Healthcare Professionals from across the region to hear updates from the national team, insights and learning from local teams on the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) and discuss readiness requirements for rollout.
