Wandsworth Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme
If you’ve found out that you are at risk of developing diabetes, the good news is that you can take steps to reduce your risk by:
- Eating well
- Moving more
- Losing weight (if you are overweight)
The Wandsworth Healthier You programme can support you in taking action in all of these areas. Those referred to the service will receive tailored, personalised support, including education on healthy eating and lifestyle, being more active, and help to lose weight, all of which together have been proven to reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
If you have had a blood test confirming you are at high risk and would like to be referred to the service, please discuss this with your GP. Programmes are held in a range of community locations across Wandsworth.
