Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

We've partnered with NHS England and Diabetes UK to offer this free programme on eating healthily, managing weight and being more active.

This sustained lifestyle change programme is delivered locally and usually in groups. However, it may be offered by telephone, group video conference, or online through apps and websites.
