Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) is a joint commitment from NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK, to deliver at scale evidence based behavioural interventions for individuals identified as being at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

The aim of the programme is to reduce people’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes across England. This will consequently improve the health of the nation whilst at the same time reducing a major financial burden on the system; one which goes beyond managing the condition itself, to the potential treatment of a number of associated conditions such as sight loss, kidney failure and stroke.

Referral onto the programme

The Healthier You programme is now available nationally, the NHS DPP will be available to every adult in England identified as being at risk of Type 2 diabetes (now known as Non-Diabetic Hyperglycaemia). We anticipate that people at risk of Type 2 diabetes will primarily be referred into the programme via one of three routes:
