ICS Health & Wellbeing has been selected as one of five providers to deliver the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) across the UK. NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK have committed to improving efforts to prevent diabetes, and this collaborative programme aims to help the 5 million people who are at risk of developing the disease.
Type 2 diabetes represents 90% of all diabetes in patients and it’s largely caused by lifestyle factors which can be modified. Our programmes focus on helping people to reduce their weight, increase their physical activity levels and improve their diet, empowering them to take charge of their health and wellbeing and learn how to prevent diabetes.
Our Diabetes Prevention Programme consists of a mixture of 1-to-1 and group sessions delivered by our specially trained health and wellbeing coaches. Throughout the programme participants learn how to prevent diabetes by incorporating healthier eating, physical activity, problem-solving, stress-reduction and coping skills into their daily lives.
