The Diabetes Prevention Programme (DPP) is a tailored, behavioural intervention programme to support a healthy weight and active lifestyle to significantly reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. It is available to those who are found to be pre-diabetic on their blood tests.
New facilitation officer, Julia Sanderson, will support the implementation of the DPP in Camden and Islington by assisting practices and can be contacted on Julia.Sanderson@icshealth.co.uk or 07436 562244.
Patients are offered a one-to-one assessment and then group sessions over 7 weeks, followed by four monthly group maintenance sessions. Participants also receive one-to-one progress review sessions with a health and wellbeing coach.
The service is part of a LES, enabling money to be provided for practices to send out mass mail-outs to their eligible population.
Most people who are eligible for the programme do not speak English as a first language and as such should not be referred through mail-shots. See leaflets in other languages below.
IT Tools are available to support the referral of patients to the programme.
