Call for Debate on Diabetes Care

Shropshire Liberal Democrat MP Helen Morgan has asked the government to allow MPs time for a debate on NHS care for diabetes.

This comes after the publication of a report by Diabetes UK showing Shropshire to have the worst care for diabetes patients in the country, with only 25 percent of all patients in the county receiving all of their care processes in 2021 and 2022 – compared to an average of 47 percent across England.

“This is a serious problem with people’s health at stake. So could we have a debate in government time, please, on improving preventative care for diabetes patients and ultimately saving lives and saving the NHS money?” asked Helen (below).“
