What is Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria?
This animation follows Tom who has been told he is at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. It looks at how Tom can prevent the disease from developing and how he got the help and support he needed from the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.
The Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) can help you put your health back in your hands and reduce your risk of developing this very serious health condition.
People from Lancashire and South Cumbria who are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes are being offered tailored support to avoid the potentially life-threatening condition.
Those who have been identified by their GP practice as being at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes will be able to access the local Healthier You service.
Reed Momenta is the provider who will deliver the programme, which is run collaboratively by NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK.
Lancashire is one of 13 areas nationally that will continue to roll out the programme following the initial roll out in 27 parts of England in 2016.
