Living Well Taking Control has been commissioned to deliver the Healthier You: NHS 

Diabetes Prevention Programme across Birmingham.

If you are over 18 years old and have had a blood test within the last 12 months which indicates you are at a high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes (the most recent blood test will be used) then your GP may refer you to the programme.

 

GP practices are currently working to identify eligible patients through the NHS Health Checks programme or through reviewing patients on the register.

 

If you have any questions regarding your risk of developing diabetes please contact your GP practice.
