Avoidable Deaths From Diabetes

EDM number 13 in 2014-15, proposed by Adrian Sanders on 04/06/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Health services.

That this House notes with alarm that up to 24,000 people with diabetes die in England each year from causes that could have been avoided; further notes that there is no reason why people with diabetes cannot live long and healthy lives if they receive the right care and support to help them manage their condition; recognises Diabetes UK's 15 healthcare essentials campaign which outlines 15 diabetes checks or services that every person with diabetes should receive or have access to; further notes that half of people with Type 2 and more than two-thirds of people with Type 1 diabetes are not receiving the care they need to stay healthy; and calls on the Government to place a greater emphasis on prioritising diabetes in the Health Outcomes and Commissioning Frameworks to improve standards of care so that the 2.3 million people with diabetes in England receive the care they need to stay healthy.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
