NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

In Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull, people recruited on to the new programme tackling Type 2 diabetes will benefit from a partnership between Health Exchange CIC and Westbank Community Health and Care, collectively known as known as Living Well Taking Control LLP, to help them make healthier lifestyle choices and reduce their risk of developing the disease.

Introduction of revalidation for nurses and midwives a ‘major success’

The introduction of revalidation for nurses and midwives has been a major success, with the majority of those due to renew their registration revalidating successfully.

Latest figures show 90.48% percent (14,362) of the 15,873 due to revalidate in April have successfully renewed their registration through revalidation and only 1,401 have left the register. This is in line with the number of registrants we would normally expect to leave the register in any given April.
