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: https://riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/starto increase access to the programme in Wiltshire.More information about the programme can be found at https://preventing-diabetes.co.uk/bath-north-east-somerset-swindon-wiltshire/ and I would love to have a conversation with you to answer any questions you have.
