That this House notes with alarm that, according to the National Paediatric Diabetes Audit, 94 per cent of children and young people with Type 1 diabetes are not receiving the full care and support they need; further notes that 85 per cent of children and young people with diabetes have poor blood glucose control, leading to avoidable complications including amputation, blindness and early death; recognises that Diabetes UK has outlined the 10 checks, care and services needed by young people with Type 1 diabetes; further notes that the rates of admission for diabetic ketoacidosis for children with diabetes has been increasing year on year and that 25 to 30 per cent of all newly diagnosed children with diabetes present in diabetic ketoacidosis; and calls on the Government and the NHS Commissioning Board to ensure that all children and young people get the diabetes care they need.

This motion has been signed by a total of 37 MPs.
