Local health economy and regional stakeholders of the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

Closed 25 May 2018

Opened 22 Mar 2018


5 million people in England are at high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, with that number rising every year. Estimates suggest that the number of people with diabetes will rise to 4.2 million by 2030, affecting almost 9% of the population.

Type 2 Diabetes is largely preventable. There are common, modifiable risk factors for developing Type 2 Diabetes - in particular sedentary behaviours/physical inactivity and obesity.

In 2016 NHS England in partnership with Public Health England (PHE) and Diabetes UK launched the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP): the first nation-wide Type 2 Diabetes prevention service.

The programme delivers behavioural interventions that are predominantly in-person and group based, providing personalised support and motivation to participants to achieve three core goals:

  • Achieve a healthy weight;
  • Achieve dietary recommendations; and
  • Achieve CMO physical activity recommendations.

The national service specification for the programme is based on best evidence following a 2015 Evidence Review undertaken by PHE.

In April 2016 a Framework of 4 national providers was put in place and a series of mini-competitions run with local health economies to call-off services across England.

From 2018 we expect to have a provider of services commissioned through the programme in place in every Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) in England.

Why we are consulting

NHS England is now consulting on proposals relating to the re-procurement of the NHS DPP Framework from November 2018 running for 3 years with the option to extend for a further year.

This survey is for primary care, local health economy and regional stakeholders. Please read the full accompanying document to this consultation before completing. It will also be helpful to have this document open whilst completing the survey.
