NHS Diabetes Prevention Program Expands

The Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (DPP) was introduced in 2016 to identify people at risk for type 2 diabetes and provide education about prevention. The program initially launched in 27 parts of the country, covering about 26 million people. The second wave of the program will serve another 13 regions. The program, which is a collaboration between NHS England, Public Health England, and Diabetes UK, will provide £42 million in funding to regions that are investing in four areas of diabetes care and treatment:

  • Structured education for the newly diagnosed
  • Achieving the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended targets for blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol
  • Increasing access to multidisciplinary foot care
  • Improving access to specialist inpatient care.
