I would like to introduce myself; my name is Aqib and I am one of the new Health & Wellbeing Coaches for the Waterside PCN. My expertise is in Diabetes management and part of our projects will be for me to take the lead on developing an educational programme for people living with Pre-Diabetes, which will consist of lifestyle interventions to reduce their risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
The education sessions will consist of a total of 6 sessions:
Session 1 – Introduction to Pre-Diabetes
Session 2 – Weight Management & Physical Activity
Session 3 – Healthy Eating & Portion Control
Session 4 – Understanding Food Labels
Session 5 – Stress, Mood & Sleep
Session 6 – Final Session – Keeping a Healthy Lifestyle Going
These sessions will be delivered in a group setting at the Blackfield Health Centre, Red and Green Practice.
This programme will start in September 2021, however, we intend to continue to run other programmes throughout the year and we will hold a wait list for those people who would like to attend in the future.
Each session will be an hour long, delivered weekly for 6 weeks and a follow up session will be scheduled after patients have completed the full programme.
If you are interested in taking part in this programme, please contact us via our team email address, thank you.
