Abstract

Type 2 diabetes is a serious, expensive and growing public health challenge. NICE guidance recommends diabetes prevention in people at high risk via intensive lifestyle interventions promoting weight loss. There are few robustly evaluated ‘real-world' diabetes prevention programmes in the UK. Immediate evidence on the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and deliverability of such programmes is needed to inform the proposed UK National Diabetes Prevention Programme.
