NHS Alliance chairman Dr Michael Dixon said: ‘The closure of DPP will be a huge loss to patient-focused health education. It has been a pioneer in encouraging professionals and patients to work together and in developing self help. The practice of healthcare is the better for the lessons it has taught. The NHS owes it a great deal.'
DPP was established in 1997 and will close on 31 August 2008.
