Diabetes – Type 2 Diabetes education programme

Lead: Leeds West

Area: Leeds West

Period: 15th Oct 2013 - 1st Nov 2013

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood glucose level to become too high. In the UK, approximately three million people are affected by diabetes. There are also thought to be around 850,000 people with undiagnosed diabetes.

In some cases of type 2 diabetes, it may be possible to control symptoms by altering lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet and taking exercise. The NHS in Leeds provides a structured education programme for people with type 2 diabetes called X-PERT. This programme supports people to make changes to their lifestyle, helping them control their blood glucose levels and reducing the risk of developing complications.

Patients have told us that we could increase the number of people attending these courses by making some changes to the way we offer our programme.

This report makes a series of recommendations to clinicians and commissioners developing the proposal for a new type 2 diabetes education programme based on feedback that members of the public gave us.

This consultation ran between: 15/10/13 – 01/11/13
