NHS National Diabetes Prevention Programme

Posted on 1st March, 2021 in News

Access to the NHS National Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP) is available for residents within the Somerset West & Taunton area.

The Somerset West & Taunton 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:



Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
