How we support you

What happens?

On the Oviva Type 2 Diabetes Path to Remission programme you’ll be matched with a coach who will provide expert one-to-one healthcare, with tailored support through every stage of the programme. You will have the option to chose how the programme is delivered to best suit your needs.

The provision of Tier 3 weight management services varies across the UK, and there are multiple barriers to attendance.
Getting started

First, we will discuss your previous medical history. We’ll ask questions about your eating habits, your everyday life and your environment to understand more about who you are. Together we’ll set realistic goals and a plan to achieve them over the course of the programme. Our mission is to support you to create new healthy habits for both your body and mind and sustain the weight you lose.
