Members received a presentation relating to the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.

Members noted the link between rising levels of obesity and Type 2 diabetes. 65% of adults in Stockton on Tees were overweight or obese and estimated diabetes prevalence in Stockton was 8.3%.

Nationally diabetes was costing the NHS around 8.8 billion a year.

80% of type 2 diabetes could be delayed or prevented.

The Partnership was provided with information relating to the National Diabetes Prevention Programme including referral routes, which would, essentially, be via GPs.

The programme supported individuals to increase their physical activity, achieve a healthy weight and improve their nutrition - the key steps in reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes. There was also behavioral therapy included in the programme and was anticipated that it would deliver wider health benefits.

Discussion:

- It was noted that the provider of the programme, Ingeus UK, would engage with Tees Active to assist with delivery. Courses were anticipated to begin in June.

- it was suggested that outcomes from the programme should come back to the Partnership and it was considered that there would be opportunities for Partners to work with the provider and use already established local networks to increase engagement with deprived and hard to reach parts of the community.

- it was noted that some GP practices were very keen to be involved in the programme, whereas other were less so. It was noted that there was funding available that may allow a co-ordinator to be appointed and this may increase the engagement with GPs.

- it was suggested that signposting people to opportunities for physical activity would have limited impact on the cohort likely to be involved in the programme. Should resources be made to incentivise taking part in activities to help encourage people to reach their goal. This may be something that could be discussed with the relevant physical activity provider.

- data about physical activity characteristics, of people successfully completing the programme, potentially, could be sourced from the provider.

- member agreed that physical activity did not need to be based with a specific provider and it was important to encourage people to take opportunities to exercise as part of their everyday life, such as walking to work, using stairs.

- though this intervention was welcomed it was suggested that an asset based approach, within communities, was needed to try and address what was a significant health issue.

- members noted that it was anticipated that 6000 people would be referred, across the CCG, in the first year, however, not all will take up the programme and only a percentage of those who do would complete it.

- motivational training was being considered for workforces that came into contact with members of the public, to encourage them to see their GP to find out f they were at risk of developing diabetes. This training could be made available to appropriate staff at the Council.

- it was explained that the provider had been requested to produce an evaluation of the effectiveness of the programme and this could be provided to the Partnership. It was agreed that an update be provided in around 6 months.

Members received the proposed JSNA relating to Obesity and noted the key strategic issues that had been identified. Details of potential action to address the identified issues was provided.

The Partnership was asked to make comments and approve the document.

Members noted that in the most deprived areas there were, potentially, cases of malnutrition. Cheap, high calorie foods often lacked nutritional value.
