The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme runs an annual Diabetes Prevention Week campaign in April. The last campaign took place from 16-22 April 2018. The date for the 2019 campaign will be 1-7 April.
The campaign aims to:
- raise awareness of the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP) with the public and healthcare professionals, specifically GPs and Practice Nurses – to increase referrals to the Programme and reduce variation between sites
- raise awareness of the causes of Type 2 diabetes and the complications associated with it; and raise awareness of at risk groups – to support sites in mobilisation of the Programme
Resources available here can be used all year round to promote diabetes prevention. Toolkits for Diabetes Prevention Week 2019 and additional resources will be available to order from the end of 2018.
