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 www.riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/start or alternatively Google Know Your Risk.
