The Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme is a free service from NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK for people at high risk of Type 2 diabetes. It provides advice on healthy eating, being more active and managing weight through a face-to-face sessions and a digital version of the service.
Materials in this campaign area have been designed to help you communicate with people who are at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and therefore eligible for the programme, and with healthcare professionals who can refer into the programme.
Healthier You is a sister brand to One You, the adult health campaign from Public Health England.
Materials here can also be used to help you mark Diabetes Prevention Week, a Healthier You campaign which takes place in April each year. The campaign aims to:
- Raise awareness of the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme – with the public and healthcare professionals (specifically GPs, Practice Nurses and Pharmacists)
- Raise awareness of the causes of Type 2 diabetes
- Raise awareness of the complications associated with Type 2 diabetes
- Raise awareness of at-risk groups
