Diabetes Prevention Week

Thu 29th April 2021

Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week is a joint campaign from NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK that is taking place from 10th –16th May 2021.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of Type 2 diabetes, how to prevent it, which groups are at-risk and encourages patients to check their risk via the Diabetes UK Know Your Risk tool.

The campaign also encourages healthcare professionals to refer eligible patients to the Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme – an evidence based lifestyle change programme which helps people at high risk of Type 2 diabetes to reduce their risk through managing their weight, eating more healthily and being more physically active
