EDM | Diabetes Week 12-18 June 2011

Posted on: 15th June 2011

Andrew George MP has signed EDM number 1883 in 2010-11, proposed by Adrian Sanders on 08/06/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House recognises that people with diabetes could be risking their health and experiencing emotional distress by keeping their diabetes secret; notes Diabetes Week istaking place from 12 to 18 June 2011; congratulates Diabetes UK for using this week to promote the message `Let’s talk diabetes’ highlighting the benefits for people with diabetes to talk about their condition; and calls on the Government to take action to ensure the provision of emotional and psychological support as an integral part of a diabetes care package as a matter of priority.
