Following the announcement of social distancing recommendations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, group-based face-to-face delivery of programmes is no longer in line with government advice. As such, group-based face-to-face services will stop from Friday 20 March 2020.

If you are a patient with Type 2 diabetes we have digital programmes available for example Oviva and Second Nature - book here

If you have been referred for Diabetes Education by your GP and still want a face to face course, you will be held in a waiting list. We will contact you again once face to face courses resume.

If you're not sure how digital courses work, call us on 020 3474 5500
