NHS England is promoting new digital resources, which are aimed at people living with type 1 diabetes. These will focus on empowering people to self-manage their condition. Individuals visiting the site will be able to access remote personalised digital education content from Diabetes UK and an on-line education programme developed by Bournemouth Diabetes Centre.
As part of re-procuring the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme Provider Framework, NHS England are planning to incorporate scope to deliver digital prevention services, which will expand the range of options for supporting people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
There are currently 10 diabetes apps that have been through the NHS App Assessment process and are publicly available on the NHS Apps Library. The diabetes section of the NHS Apps Library is due to continue to grow.
