Kevan recently met with young constituents with Type 1 diabetes at a lobby of Parliament organised by Diabetes UK.
“I was very pleased to have the opportunity to meet with young people with diabetes and their parents, and to hear first hand the difficulties they can face. I was also impressed by the work of Diabetes UK, and particularly this campaign to improve the support offered to children with Type-1 diabetes. I agree that it is vital that these young people, no matter where they live, should receive the best possible treatment and care.
“ I will be raising these concerns with local NHS leaders, and also intend to get in touch with local schools about raising awareness of the condition amongst teachers.”
