Living Well Taking Control – Your Local NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme provider

About Living Well Taking Control

Living Well Taking Control (LWTC) works with the NHS as part of the National Diabetes Prevention Programme across the UK. LWTC is a not-for-profit programme of Health Exchange, specialising in face-to-face support for patients living with pre-diabetes. LWTC provides group and peer-to-peer support through regular sessions which cover a range of topics from positive mental health, exercise and a healthy diet. Patients can bring friends or family members along to sessions, enabling all round support in practice and at home. LWTC also offers digital health coaching through a special app developed by LWTC’s partner, Liva Healthcare.

Every two minutes someone finds out that they have Type 2 diabetes – a serious health condition that can cause long term health problems. It can lead to sight loss, kidney failure, loss of a limb, and makes you at least twice as likely to have a heart attack or stroke. Being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes can have a huge impact on you and your family and can mean lots of changes to the way you live your life. It’s very important that you find out if you are at high risk of Type 2 diabetes so you can get support to lower your risk. You may be eligible to be enrolled in a free local ‘Healthier You’ NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.
