Group sessions with practical advice that’s proven to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes
Healthier You is an NHS-funded service, delivered in partnership with Leicester Diabetes Centre and Changing Health. It has been developed by expert nutritionists, diabetes researchers and doctors, with people like you in mind.
This programme is designed to help you make simple changes to your diet, your physical activity levels and your weight management, with the aim of significantly reducing or removing your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. In the past 12 months, thousands of people with similar risk factors have joined the Healthier You programme.
Once you have been referred by a health professional, generally your GP, we will contact you to confirm your details and then invite you to join a series of local sessions. These are delivered by trained programme experts to small groups, aimed at giving support and guidance to getting healthy, staying healthy and living healthy.
The sessions are informal and interactive to enable everyone to share ideas and tips, and benefit from the experiences of other people who are looking to reduce their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
The Healthier You programme is focused on providing information and advice to enable you to decide which changes work best for you.
