Walking Away from Diabetes Programme
Walking Away from Diabetes is a pre-diabetic intervention programme for people who are at risk of diabetes. The initial three-hour educational workshop offers participants the opportunity to explore their personal risk and identify changes they need to make to remain healthy. In Southwark, patients are offered a further follow-up workshop at 12 weeks and individual follow-up consultation at 24 weeks. The educational workshops and follow-up consultations take place at community settings in the borough.
The programme covers the following:
- understanding more about diabetes and blood glucose
- how being at risk can affect long term health
- understanding which factors contribute to being at risk
- reducing risk through physical activity and healthy eating
- planning for the future
