Type 2 Diabetes – Soup and Shake Diets

You may have heard on media channels that the NHS is offering free soup and shake diets for people with Type 2 diabetes. The initiative is being rolled out in specific areas of the country. In the South East this is Frimley Health & Care STP, therefore this is not yet available for Kent and Medway patients.  We have asked that NHSE inform us when the plan for further roll-out will be available so we can update you all. 

In the meantime – the One You programme in Kent and Diabetes UK have a range of resources available to provide support, with topics including exercise for being active at home, diet, and mental wellbeing while staying at home or self-isolating.
