Assessing risk of type 2 diabetes

The 2017 update to the Best Practice Guidance recommends that a validated tool is used to assess the risk of type 2 diabetes as part of an NHS Health Check. To help local authorities understand how different validated risk assessment tools perform PHE have published a comparator tool. This provides an illustration of the number of people in the local population identified at risk of diabetes for each of the tools, as well as estimates for the number of people each tool would identify with non-diabetic hyperglycaemia and type 2 diabetes. The comparator tool is intended to help inform local decisions on which validated tool to use, you can find the tool here.
