Read the case study

In 2016, NHS England commissioned Healthier You: the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP). NDPP is an early intervention service designed to support people at risk of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) to make long-standing changes to their health and wellbeing and prevent them developing the condition. Ingeus, in partnership with Leicester Diabetes Centre (LDC), delivers NDPP in 18 areas across the UK, accounting for 38% of all programme referrals commissioned so far. It is the largest single provider of NDPP services across the country, with over 62,000 referrals. It has achieved exceptionally high performance for uptake, retention and participant outcomes (average HbA1c reduction of -4.4 mmol/mol after six months, LDC analysis, February 2018).

Judges' comments:

"This entry demonstrated impressive outcomes coupled with some truly insightful referrals. The model is remarkably sustainable and the team supplied some detailed numerical data. Overall the team delivered a very successful project."
