Wiltshire NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

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 checklist 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: https://riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/start
