NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP)

The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme identifies patients who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and refers them to a behaviour change programme.The programme currently consists of face-to-face appointments, where patients get tailored, individualised help such as lifestyle education, advice on how to lose weight healthily and sustainably, and a personalised exercise programme. All of these interventions have been shown together to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes developing.
