DWELL (Diabetes and WELLbeing)
More than €2.3m (£3.9m) of European funding has been secured by a cross-border partnership to develop a cross-European approach to tackling Type 2 diabetes, ending March 2023.
Called 'DWELL', this initiative involves eight partners from the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands and France. The programme enables patients in these countries with Type 2 diabetes to access tailored support, empowering them to self-manage their condition and improve their wellbeing.
A 12-week patient support programme of ‘pick and mix’ options and a training package for staff to deliver the programme has been designed by, and implemented in, all four countries represented in the partnership.
As a result of improving patients’ long-term health and wellbeing, it is estimated that the project will see a 30% per person reduction to state-funded health services per year - anticipated at €1.25m (£1.09m) per 1,000 patients per year.
The DWELL project was approved and funded by the EU Interreg 2 Seas Programme 2014-2020 (co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund).
