Although direct referrals are preferred, during COVID restrictions patients can self refer by completing the risk calculator on the Diabetes UK website with a score of 16+.

If you think your patients could be at risk and could benefit from the programme, please sign post them to the risk calculator.

Patients will be asked to answer a series of basic questions such as age, weight and ethnicity. The tool will calculate their risk. For patients that receive a risk score of 16+ the tool will let them know how to register and join the programme.

The Know Your Risk tool can be found at the Diabetes UK website at or alternatively Google Know Your Risk.
