Health: Diabetes

Volume 711: debated on Monday 22 June 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report in The Lancet on the number of cases of childhood diabetes in Europe. [HL4269]

We have noted the findings of the report, which indicates that increasing numbers of children will be affected by type 1 diabetes. Primary care trusts will need to ensure appropriate planning of services and that resources are in place to provide high-quality care for the anticipated increased numbers of children affected.
