  • You could reduce your risk of diabetes by 50%

Your Care

When you join, we will assess your needs and provide you with your own personalised healthcare plan that makes sense for you.

As part of your plan, you will be matched with either a personal health coach or a community group made up of people also on the programme and those who have finished to support you in making changes.

Use the Oviva app to track your weight, food, activity, mood, and blood glucose. This will be shared with your coach so they can give you truly tailored advice.

New resources in Oviva Learn are unlocked weekly. The videos, podcasts, recipes, quizzes are all produced by our specialist dietitians and psychologists, and will support you to create new healthy habits for both your body and mind.

How it works

Graeme's story

“I am very pleased to have been part of this programme – I am a great believer in prevention being better than cure – it made me sit up and take notice!

I had instant rapport with my coach and we had interesting discussions. I was always excited to tell her when I had lost weight. My whole experience was enjoyable, and all of the information was pitched at just the right level. I’m at the point where my weight is not difficult to maintain. I feel comfortable and I don’t feel like I am on a diet or struggling to stay where I am.”

Graeme is 67 years old and lives in Buckinghamshire. On completing Oviva Diabetes Prevent, Graeme’s blood glucose levels were down to a healthy level and he lost 10% of his body weight.
