NHS National Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP) for residents within the Wiltshire area. The Wiltshire Diabetes Prevention programme is a free service for people who are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Prevention Programme is a behaviour change programme where people learn about, diet, physical activity and strategies to improve their overall health, all aimed at reducing their risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. Normally, people access the programme through their GP however, due to the pandemic and the subsequent pressure that our GP practices are facing, for a limited time we have enabled a self-referral option via the Diabetes UK ‘Know Your Risk Score’ – a check list of questions that can determine a person’s risk factors - This has also enabled the programme to become more accessible to people within the area. The risk tool can be accessed via the link below: increase access to the programme in Wiltshire. More information about the programme can be found at swindon-wiltshire/ and I would love to have a conversation with you to answer any questions you have.
The Book Exchange is open.  The Collingbourne Ducis book exchange, provided by the Parish Council, is now up and running in the smart, refurbished red telephone box opposite the Tipple Inn.  This is a community resource and we hope that everyone finds something to their taste.  We aim  to have a range of books for various ages and interests. Please feel free to borrow and/or donate books. It is used at your own risk and we ask that you use the hand sanitiser provided, please. If you are donating books and there is no room on the shelves, please leave them in the front porch of Ducis House in the High Street rather than leaving them on the floor or outside the exchange.
