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.

Live Well - Type 2

Diabetes Live Well is delivered in a relaxed, informal, non-judgemental and enjoyable way, focusing on the person living with diabetes. The facilitators share their evidence- based knowledge and practical skills in diabetes care, and encourage participants to share their experiences of living with diabetes.

How does it work?

Working in groups of up to 14 people, the courses are delivered by a specilaist nurse and dietician or other qualified healthcare professional. There is additional capacity for some people to be accompanied by their carer.

Courses run for one 6-hr day, mostly on Mondays but occasionally on a Saturday up to four times a year. In some cases it there may be the option to split a course over 2 days.

Here's what some recent Live Well course participants told us:

"It was an informative and supportive Live Well programme, I feel more comfortable about my diagnosis"                    

"The Live Well programme really helped me to focus on my diet"
