Smokefree diabetes

The Smokefree Diabetes programme is a 6-week cost-effective structured type 2 diabetes education and smoking cessation dual programme, working towards long-term behavioural change. The programme comprises two and a half-hour group sessions with 10-12 patients who have diabetes and want to give up smoking, with the aim of motivating management of their condition and lifestyle through educational self- empowerment. The programme meets NICE guidelines and QOF targets and is based on the success of ROMEO. Sessions are held in convenient and easily accessible locations
