NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (DPP) New Provider July 2022


Personalised support to reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes including education on healthy eating and lifestyle, help to lose weight and physical exercise programmes

NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme is part of the national programme which identifies people with Non-Diabetic Hyperglycaemia (NDH) and at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, referring them on to a behaviour change programme.

The NHS DPP is a joint commitment from NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK.

The Healthier You DPP delivers both a face to face and digital service that enables participants to engage in 13 core curriculum themes, personalised to them, with each and every touchpoint being tailored to NDH and the benefits of risk reduction of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

Patients can now self refer by completing a simple assessment via the Diabetes UK https://riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/start . If  the score is over 16 the participant will be recommended to join the Diabetes Prevention Programme.

Coventry and Warwickshire STP has a new provider Xyla Health & Wellbeing from July 2022 offering the DPP to all self referring patients and practices who wish to refer their eligible NDH population into the programme.

As a GP or health professional, you will already be aware that the risk of Type 2 diabetes is significantly reduced if your patients make positive changes to their diet, weight and the amount of physical activity they do.

Your local Healthier You service can support your patients in taking action in all of these areas.

Taking this kind of action now is very important as it can reduce your patients’ risk of, or even stop the development of, the very serious health condition of Type 2 diabetes.
