Diabetes Voices – Together we can improve diabetes Care for all
Diabetes Voices is a network of people who campaign and influence for better diabetes care and services nationally and also locally in their own areas.
Across the country people living with diabetes aren’t getting the level of healthcare they need or deserve. If you would like to do your bit to improve this and you haven’t signed up to Diabetes Voices yet – you are missing out!
We already have 1,200 people already signed up and together we’ll have a stronger voice. Diabetes Voices launched in October last year and have had some real achievements in this time.
• In May nearly 70 Diabetes Voices attended the Big lobby in Westminster where they lobbied their MPs to ask them to support our campaign for a national implementation plan for diabetes.
• Diabetes Voices have been invited to speak at four All Party Parliamentary Group meetings about their experiences of living with diabetes.
• Two Diabetes Voices were invited to join the DVLA working group looking at the new revised driving license forms for people with diabetes.
• 40 Diabetes Voices attended a Parliamentary Question Time event in London attended by Paul Burstow MP (then Minister of State for Care Services)
You can read about more about what Diabetes Voices have been up to in our newsletters which can be found in our most recent Diabetes Voices newsletter. We will keep you up to date with achievements in our future blogs.
