About the Diabetes Prevention Programme

Here at ICS Health & Wellbeing, we’re dedicated to making the UK’s local and workplace communities healthier which is why Southend-on-Sea Borough Council has commissioned us to deliver a Diabetes Prevention Programme to support residents in discovering and preventing the symptoms of diabetes.

We care about people and like to think that our personable and friendly approach inspires the encouragement and positivity needed to support sustained behaviour change. Working with local authorities, CCGs and employers around the UK, we design, implement and evaluate innovative health and wellbeing services that result in long-term health benefits for the communities we work with.

We benefit from being part of Independent Clinical Services - a large organisation with over 10 years’ experience in the healthcare industry. The specialists who work for us are experienced and highly capable and we follow an insight-based approach that’s proven to produce results.

We are one of only a few organisations in the UK offering a fully integrated health service that can be tailored to suit the needs of local communities. As well as diabetes prevention, we offer support in a number of other areas, including:

  • Weight management
  • Physical activity
  • Alcohol misuse
  • Substance misuse
  • Smoking cessation
  • Mental wellbeing
