The Wiltshire Diabetes Prevention programme is a free service for people who are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The Diabetes Prevention Programme is a behaviour change programme where people learn about, diet, physical activity and strategies to improve their overall health, all aimed at reducing their risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
Normally, people access the programme through their GP however, due to the pandemic and the subsequent pressure that our GP practices are facing, for a limited time we have enabled a self-referral option via the Diabetes UK ‘Know Your Risk Score’ – a check list of questions that can determine a person’s risk factors - This has also enabled the programme to become more accessible to people within the area.
The risk tool can be accessed via the link below: https://riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/start
In order to increase access to the programme in Wiltshire I was hoping you could help me with promotion within your community.
We would love to put some local advertising of the programme on your newsletter, notice boards, website and/or social media sites if you have them to spread the word that this programme is available, completely free of charge through the NHS.
We have promotional material available and a newsletter information if you require and are really keen to support you how ever we can.
