Following the announcement of social distancing recommendations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, group-based face-to-face delivery of programmes is no longer in line with government advice. As such, group-based face-to-face services will stop from Friday 20 March 2020.

If you are a patient with Type 2 diabetes we have digital programmes available for example Oviva and Second Nature - book here

If you have been referred for Diabetes Education by your GP and still want a face to face course, you will be held in a waiting list. We will contact you again once face to face courses resume.

What are some of the benefits of diabetes education programmes?


Examples of structured education courses include: Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating (DAFNE) for Type 1 diabetes, Diabetes Education and Self-Management for Ongoing and Newly Diagnosed (DESMOND) and the X-PERT programme for Type 2 diabetes.

There are many experiences of people who have attended a structured education course saying that it has transformed their lives. You can read some of the testimonials on this website.

There is such convincing research behind the effectiveness of structured education programmes for people with diabetes, that the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends they should be offered to every person with diabetes and/or their carer at and around the time of diagnosis, with annual reinforcement and review.
