Three quarters of CCGs apply for wave one of NHS diabetes prevention programme

More than three-quarters (168) of CCGs, in partnership with 132 local authorities, have submitted expressions of interest to become part of the first phase of roll-out of the NHS diabetes prevention programme.

The 66 bids were from single locations as well as clusters over larger areas.

The programme was launched in March 2015, initially in seven demonstrator sites which have been trialling different models of finding people known to be at high risk and helping them to change their lifestyles.
