The National Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP)
Did you know that there are currently five million people in England who are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes? If these trends persist, one in ten will go on to develop Type 2 diabetes, which evidence shows in many cases is preventable.
As well as the human cost, Type 2 diabetes treatment accounts for just under 9% of the annual NHS budget, around £8.8 million per year!

Practices can refer their patients, via the following methods, all of which should be available and auto-populated from your local systems for ease of use.
Patients are able to self-refer by phoning 0800 092 1191 and speaking to the support team as long as they have the required information for example HbA1c blood result within the range and time line.
Once a referral has been received by the Provider they will take responsibility for all patient contact and arrangements so there is no more for you to do from that point on. Quarterly updates on the patients process will be provided to a nominated practice nhs.net account and once a patient completes the programme, you will be notified so that you can monitor them going forward as you may previously have done.
