Minister of Health for Care Services welcomes Type 1 Parliament

26 March 2012

We’re delighted to let you know that Paul Burstow, Minister of Health for Care Services, has spoken in Parliament welcoming JDRF’s Type 1 diabetes lobbying event. The Minister made his comments during a Commons debate on diabetes on Friday, stating:

“I welcome the fact that there will be a type 1 diabetes parliamentary lobby by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in the next month or so to highlight some of the relevant issues.”

With JDRF’s Type 1 Parliament quickly approaching, a ministerial mention in Parliament goes a long way in helping raise awareness of the event and of some of the key issues surrounding type 1. In addition to drawing attention to Type 1 Parliament, the Minister also spoke about access to insulin pumps and medicine. The full debate can be accessed here.
