Judges comment:

"This is a really well-designed campaign, with clear and deliverable objectives. The numbers of people this project has touched is impressive and the implementation and results are first class. The tool is easy to use and has often been delivered in deprived communities where over half of those involved have taken it up."

Preventing diabetes by turning research into practice

by Leicester Diabetes Centre

Read the case study

The Let’s Prevent Diabetes group education programme is set to become one of the first interventions in the UK to show a structured educational programme can reduce the number of people at high risk of type 2 diabetes. It was piloted in two Leicestershire towns where 3,000 people at high risk of type 2 diabetes received tailored, personalised help, including education on healthy eating and lifestyle, losing weight and bespoke physical exercise programmes.

Judges comment:

"This was well-structured, cost-effective with strong evidence of outcomes and the patient feedback is great."

STEPS to prevent diabetes: a diabetes prevention course in Lambeth, South East London

by Lambeth Diabetes Intermediate Care Team

Read the case study

The STEPS short prevention course focused on increasing activity through walking among people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. STEPS was planned and implemented by a diabetes specialist nurse and dietician and funded by Lambeth CCG. GP referrals to STEPS have increased year-on-year and almost 900 people attended in the past three years. No significant changes in HbA1c, total serum cholesterol, blood pressure, weight and body mass index were found after the course and there was no progression to type 2 diabetes for most participants.

Judges comment:

"A great and well-designed project that fits in well with the national agenda. The project clearly recognises its limitations, but also identifies the potential impact."
