At the Village we are often involved in NHS and local pilot projects. We are currently involved in
Diabetes Prevention Programme (Local CCG and NHS)
The National Diabetes Prevention Programme (‘Healthier You’) is now well established in Islington. To date, over 650 residents have been referred and there is very good attendance.
The programme offers patients who are at risk of developing diabetes a structured nine-month intervention which supports them to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Evidence suggests that diabetes prevention programmes such as Healthier You can reduce progression to diabetes.
We have contacted all our eligible patients but if you would like further information please as the Reception team.
We have a clinic once a week at the Village Practice for counselling. This clinic can be accessed by self referral to the icope service or speaking to your GP. For a self referral please access the tab on self referral.
Once a week we also have the carers hub at the Practice who are a service to help and support carers. Please contact reception for more information. We are currently reviewing our list of carers and making sure that they are aware of the support available to them. We are doing this alongside Islington Carers Hub. Please contact the Practice to make an appointment with the Carers Hub.
