Over 90% of people with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes . The associated complication and premature mortality burden is borne by individuals, their families and carers , and by the National Health Service (NHS) . Randomized controlled trials in those with impaired glucose tolerance have shown that onset of Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed through behavioural interventions .A strategy for future healthcare in England, published in 2014, suggested a focus on prevention to manage demand, and proposed a national Type 2 diabetes prevention programme .
