A total of 13 new sites across England will benefit from a type 2 diabetes prevention programme, it has just been announced.

Wave 2 of the Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme is part of a wider package of measures to support people with diabetes and those on the cusp of it, to stay fit, well and prevent further deterioration.

The programme will now be rolled out across the following sites:

  • Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and Luton
  • Bucks, Oxford & Berk West
  • Hampshire & Isle of Wight
  • Black Country
  • Cornwall and IOS – Cornwall & Isles of Scilly
  • Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucester
  • Gloucestershire
  • North Central London
  • South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw
  • Greater Manchester
  • Lancashire & South Cumbria
  • West Yorkshire
  • Bath & NE Somerset Swindon & Wiltshire

The Wave 2 areas will cover another 25 per cent of the population, with an estimated 130,000 referrals and up to 50,000 additional places made available thanks to the expansion. Funding has also been agreed for another 12 months in the 27 sites currently up and running.

The ambition is for the programme to eventually cover the whole of the country and these figures could rise to as many as 200,000 referrals and more than 80,000 people on programmes by 2018/19.

The head of NHS England Simon Stevens said: “With more than 18,000 people having already started our diabetes prevention programme, the NHS is doing its bit but this is a battle we cannot win alone.”

The programme, which is run collaboratively by NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK, was officially launched last year with 27 areas covering 26 million people – almost half of the country. The latest figures reveal the programme is making good progress, with just under 50,000 people referred in Wave 1 and more than 18,000 on the programme at the end of April. This exceeds the original target set in the NHS Mandate of 10,000 referrals during 2017/18.

NHS England has also unveiled how the diabetes transformation fund of £42 million, which was part of its Five Year Forward View plan, has been divided up. The money was earmarked to advance the care and treatment people with diabetes receive every year.

It has been confirmed £36 million will be given to the relevant CCGs/STPs, where the national investment committee was satisfied that robust plans were already in place.

A further £4 million investment has been given to in CCGs/STPs where the panel felt the proposals had merit but required further work before they could be approved, with a particular focus on areas with greatest need as identified through national datasets.

A total of £2 million will go on supporting improvements in areas with significant inequalities in diabetes outcomes.

Final funding will be subject to a number of conditions, including all commissioner and provider organisations within a bidding footprint having a financial plan for 2017/18, which is within their allocated financial control total, and each bidding footprint, demonstrating satisfactory performance against key metrics as defined by the programme.

Below is a list of CCGs who have been successful in their bid for extra money to improve diabetes care in their area. They are ordered by region and in their areas.
