GP-led diabetes prevention scheme will start saving NHS money 'after 14 years'

The Government’s flagship diabetes prevention programme will start saving the NHS money by around 2030, according to an impact assessment.

The programme, which launched earlier this year and is currently being rolled out across the country, should become cost-saving ‘by year 14’, public health experts reported.

It comes as Public Health England (PHE) has warned that the rising tide of type 2 diabetes – on course to affect five million by 2035 – could cripple the NHS financially in the future.

The National Diabetes Prevention Programme – set up by PHE in collaboration with NHS England and Diabetes UK, to try reverse the tide – has tasked GPs with finding and referring the estimated five million at risk of diabetes for group activities such as Zumba and cookery classes, to help get them to be more active and lose weight.

You could not make it up! Until these dolts change their dietary recommendations to diabetics, they will continue to throw money into a bottomless pit.
