Diabetes Education Courses

We are the UK’s largest and fastest growing face to face provider of structured diabetes education.  We have had thousands of patient interactions to date, and are working across multiple CCGs up and down the country to deliver better uptake rates and an improved patient experience with our award winning, one session approach.

The availability of local healthcare professionals to administer, manage and deliver the programmes contributes to these low take-up rates.

That’s why we developed EMPOWER, our nationwide structured diabetes education programme designed to tackle these barriers and help people living with type 2 diabetes.

Our QISMET accredited EMPOWER course is loved by patients and clinical professionals alike. Achieving an impressive 99% Friends and Family Test score, over five times the national uptake rate and excellent clinical outcomes including a 12% relative reduction in HbA1c, EMPOWER is fully managed by the Spirit Clinical team, so we can deliver as many courses as you require, in a wide variety of community locations.



We employ (and deploy!) our own diabetes educators, and provide absolutely everything that’s needed for excellent education for an agreed package price. No hidden extras, just amazing attendance and reliable results.

We can also offer online education packages, please contact us for more information.
