The award-winning Low Carb Program is now available on the G-Cloud 12 framework after it was approved last year. 

The G-Cloud is an initiative targeted at easing procurement by public-sector bodies in departments of the United Kingdom Government of commodity information technology services that use cloud computing. The framework is divided into three Lots: Cloud Hosting; Cloud Software; and Cloud Support.

The new announcement means procuring the Low Carb Program, an evidence-based structured behavioural change programme supporting people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes to place their condition into remission, has become far easier for public bodies to purchase.

Published outcomes

The program has been clinically proven to reduce HbA1c levels, improve glycaemic control, facilitate weight loss and reduce medications.

The Low Carb Program’s one year peer-reviewed, published outcomes demonstrated that on average, people with type 2 diabetes who complete the programme lose 7.4kg, reduce their HbA1c by 1.2%, and 39% have an HbA1c below the threshold for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes at 1-year.

On top of that, 40% of people who start on medication eliminate at least one type of drug from their treatment regime. In 2018 the Program was approved for NHS use by the Quality Institute for Self Management Education and Training (QISMET).

Alongside healthcare, the G-Cloud 12 framework service will also support central government, local authorities, education and blue light services in a bid to transform the way they deliver their services to the public.
