The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP), which is delivered by a consortium of providers including digital health tech company Liva Healthcare, has announced four new contracts.
Under the deals, patients from Derbyshire, Nottingham & Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, and Worcestershire and Herefordshire will have access to the programme, which is designed to encourage long-term behavioural change to manage diabetes through health education and lifestyle coaching.
