Rollout of the All Wales Diabetes Prevention programme begins
The national programme, which offers targeted support to people at an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, is now being delivered in the GP practices involved in the first phase of the programme nationwide.
The AWDPP sees dedicated, trained healthcare support workers, with oversight from dietitians, deliver a brief intervention to people who have had a blood test that shows they are at an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. The intervention helps individuals to understand their level of risk and supports them to reduce it through key changes to their diet and level of physical activity.
The AWDPP is being rolled out in phases with an embedded evaluation, which will assess the outcomes of the programme and the effectiveness of the intervention. In the first half of 2022, the programme is being rolled out in two primary care clusters in each of Wales’ seven health board areas.
