programmes are emerging that already

have proven positive results. Earlier this

year, NHS England gave the go ahead for

CCGs to use 25% of their Type 2 diabetes

education Transformation Funds budget

for digital tools.

With so much innovation, we take

a look at some of the research and the

programmes designed to help people

with diabetes or those at risk of Type 2

to make positive changes to their lifestyle

and - ultimately - their health.

AXA PPP Healthcare

Health insurance companies have

cottoned on to these ideas too, with Just+

from Active+, a digital platform from AXA

PPP Healthcare, claiming to 'take control

of diabetes for just £149 (often £99 with

special offers). This is a subscriptionbased support and education programme

to combat Type 2 diabetes that includes

one-to-one coaching as well as kit

selected in order to create healthy habits,

which might include a supplied blood test

meter. The Just+ app is a means to deliver

messages from a coach, a way to share

tips and tricks, and also to track progress

of the user. The whole thing starts with a

paid-for six-week kick-start programme,

after which it's free and you get to keep

the kit. The insurance company says in

its website, "Improving health and fitness

is as important as picking up the pieces

when things go wrong. More people are

taking greater responsibility for their own

wellbeing… using tech and information to

create personal solutions."

Changing Health

Featured on BBC documentary How

to Stay Young, Changing Health

provides behaviour change programmes

(comprising digital education and lifestyle

coaching) for people with Type 2 diabetes,

and is currently commissioned across 16

NHS organisations. It supports people to

set realistic goals for activity, weight loss

and food intake. After GP referral, people

can get access to the program in minutes.

Simple information including short videos,

articles and interactive activities about diet

and exercise are there for people to view

and digest as quickly or as slowly as they

like. A personal coach specialising in lifestyle

behaviour change is also on hand over the

phone, at times that work for the user.

John Grumitt, Changing Health

CEO says, "Made possible through

collaborative relationships with our

NHS partners, together we identified

why patients don't engage, how the

healthcare systems often fail them, and

came up with a solution that worked."

Stats reveal that within 12 weeks,

users see positive results, including

reduced HbA1c and a notable increase

in moderate to vigorous activity.

Ingeus

Focusing entirely on diabetes prevention,

Ingeus works in partnership with Leicester "We try to go further than just

looking at diet and exercise,

with large parts focusing

on things like sleep, stress

management, and mental

health.

- OurPath CEO Chris Edson

Diabetes Centre to support people at

high risk of Type 2. It's the largest single

provider of The Healthier You: NHS

Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP)

across the country, with more than

107,000 referrals.

Available by referral only, people are

invited to join free group sessions at a

local venue. There, they meet others also

aiming to lower their Type 2 risk and to

speak with trained facilitators who will

help to increase their knowledge and

understanding - how making simple

changes to diet, weight and the amount

of physical activity can really reduce the

risk of going on to develop Type 2.

With outstanding results in supporting

people to reduce their weight and blood

sugar levels, Ingeus picked up the

Prevention and Early Diagnosis: Type 2

Diabetes accolade at this year's Quality

in Care (QiC) Diabetes Award. Barry

Fletcher, MD of Ingeus UK commented

on the win saying, "We are delighted to

have been recognised by industry peers

for our work with the NHS diabetes

prevention program. This is a nationwide

initiative, delivered at scale, but with

people at its core. This award recognises

that effective behaviour change programs

can positively influence outcomes for
