During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are changing the way we deliver our services.
We are currently offering 1-2-1 Prediabetes support and advice over the phone and will be running online group Prediabetes programmes soon.
Covid-19 poses greater risk and complications to those with diabetes, so it is important now more than ever to take control of your health.

Preventing Type 2 Diabetes
Around 7 million people in the UK have prediabetes and have a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Our prediabetes programme aims to help prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes by reducing the risks and allowing people to take more control. The session helps people set small manageable goals to help avoid developing Type 2 diabetes. Diet, physical activity and other lifestyle factors are the main focus.
People who have a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes:
- Family history of Type 2 diabetes
- Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 25
- High Blood sugar level test result (from your GP or practice nurse)
If you fit into these categories our prevention programme could provide you with the advice you need to prevent diabetes.
The session is approximately 3 hours long. To find out more details and book a place please contact Horsham Wellbeing on 01403 215111, email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete a referral form
Anyone who is unsure about their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes can visit riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/start and take a quick 60 second test provided by Diabetes UK.
