Answered on

7 March 2017

73 clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) applied for Wave 2 funding under the diabetes prevention programme. Their bids were made as part of collaborative arrangements involving several CCGs, and not all CCGs will implement the programme at the same pace.

The estimated total cost of implementing the diabetes prevention programme to date, covering the wave 1 areas, is £12 million. Actual payments are dependent on the performance of providers. The details of these contracts are shown in the attached table. Contracts for Wave 2 are due to be approved and awarded in March 2017.

The attached table shows the lead CCGs that have applied for diabetes transformation funding for any of the following interventions (this does not include details of all CCGs that are involved with bids, as in some cases many CCGs collaborated to deliver a project):

- improving uptake of structured education for people with diabetes;

- improving the achievement of the treatment targets recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence;

- new or expanded multi-disciplinary footcare teams; and

- new or expanded diabetes inpatient specialist nursing services.
