Information Prescriptions For People With Diabetes

EDM number 43 in 2007-08, proposed by Adrian Sanders on 06/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health education and preventive medicine, Health services and Medicine.

That this House notes with concern that 65 per cent. of the two million people in the UK with diabetes are not taking their medications as prescribed because one in three do not understand that those medications are for, or how to take them; welcomes the work of a coalition of Diabetes UK, the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Society and Ask About Medicines to facilitate understanding of medicines used to treat diabetes; believes that every one with the condition has a right to expect a personalised information prescription expressed in an appropriate format as part of their care planning process; further believes that such a personalised prescription should help to ensure that access to clear and consistent information that is accurate, up-to-date and trustworthy will enable people with diabetes to understand their condition and treatment options regardless of their age, ethnicity, disability or postcode; further believes that people should be encouraged to seek information on medicines and other treatments by discussing their condition with and asking questions of a range of healthcare professionals and by accessing other forms of support and information tailored for each person in their particular situation; and therefore calls on the Government to ensure that the NHS at a local level provides diabetes care and support in line with these standards.

This motion has been signed by a total of 57 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
