  • I’ve been referred to Healthier You but haven’t yet started the programme, what will happen to me?

    If you’ve already been referred to Healthier You, Xyla Health and Wellbeing will try and get you started on the programme before the end of July. If you do start the programme before the end of July you will continue to be supported by Xyla Health and Wellbeing until you are finished.

    If you don’t start the Healthier You programme by the end of July, your information will safely shared with Reed Wellbeing so that they can contact you and you will start the programme with them. You will receive a letter from Xyla Health and Wellbeing about this and will be given the option to opt out if you would rather your information not be passed on to Reed Wellbeing. If you do opt out, this would mean your GP would have to re refer you into the programme to Reed Wellbeing.

  • Why is this change happening?

    The current contract was coming to an end and the decision was made, following due process, to award the contract to Reed Wellbeing. The NHS in Greater Manchester is working closely with Xyla Health and Wellbeing and Reed Wellbeing to ensure the service transfers safely and that patients continue to be supported.

  • Will the service change when it moves to Reed?

    The primary aim of Healthier You continues to be the prevention of Type 2 diabetes through the delivery of a face to face or digital behaviour change programme

    Face to face group sessions are delivered by trained health and wellbeing coaches over the course of 9 – 12 months. Throughout the programme participants learn how to prevent diabetes by incorporating healthier eating, physical activity, problem-solving, stress-reduction and coping skills into their daily lives.

    The digital service is available for people unable to attend face to face sessions and delivered online or through a smartphone.

  • Are there any differences between the Xyla and the Reed Healthier You Programmes?

    The only difference is that under the Reed a tailored remote service will also be offered alongside the face to face and digital interventions to specified cohorts or groups who are at higher risk of experiencing health inequalities.

  • Will I need a new referral form?

    Yes, ahead of the 1st August you will receive an email from GMSS with a new referral form and contact email address for Reed to send referrals to. You will be required to import the new referral form on your clinical system and delete the old one.

    The GMSS Data Quality Team will be available to support you if you are struggling to import these by calling 0161 212 6182.

  • I have started Healthier You but I won’t have finished by end of July, what will happen to me?

    If you have started the Healthier You programme before the end of July, please don’t worry you won’t need to do anything. You will continue to be supported by Xyla Health and Wellbeing until you fully complete the programme.

  • Can I still refer to Healthier You before the 1st August?

    Yes, Xyla will stop accepting new referrals on Friday 29th July 2022, until then you can continue to refer into the Xyla service using the referral form currently installed
    on your clinical system.

  • What will happen to my patients that have already started the programme before the 1st August?

    If your patients have started the Healthier You programme before the 1st August, no action is required by the practice or the patient. They will continue to be supported by Xyla until they have fully completed the programme.
