Changing Health’s intervention programme to prevent Type 2 diabetes combines new technology and behavioural change experts to encourage people to make long term, positive lifestyle changes. It has been adopted as part of the Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (DPP). The NHS provides face-to-face, structured education and support, but its approach cannot be tailored to individual needs. The solution is a personalised, digital programme using comprehensive research in metabolism, diabetes and behavioural science. It combines bespoke, one-to-one lifestyle coaching (delivered over the phone), with a customisable course of structured diabetes education (delivered via an app). People at risk of diabetes learn how they can fit simple lifestyle changes into their lives and receive personalised support. Each participant sets goals based on their ability to change at any one time and can call on a dedicated lifestyle coach for support or just to chat about their health.
