OneLife Suffolk we will be launching a campaign which focuses on the prevention of Type 2 Diabetes. This campaign aims to:

  • Encourage local people to assess their risk of type 2 diabetes through use of the Diabetes UK risk tool
  • Increase the awareness about the steps people can take to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes specifically by signposting/ referring to the OneLife Suffolk services
  • Encourage 40- 74 year olds to have their NHS Health Check
  • Signpost patients with type 2 diabetes to DESMOND and OneLife Suffolk’s weight management 
  • Get Help to Get Active services to offer support with their condition

There are an estimated 1 million people in the UK, living with undiagnosed Type 2 Diabetes. Throughout January Onelife Suffolk hopes to encourage as many local people as possible to assess their risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
