That this House notes that the UK has the highest number of children with diabetes in Europe with 20,000 children below the age of 15 years diagnosed; urges the Government to ensure that children suffering from diabetes receive vital checks required for good diabetes management; further notes with concern the recent Diabetes UK campaign highlighting the lack of support for children at school in the management of their diabetes; further urges the Government to aid schools in ensuring children with diabetes have a safe environment and are able to receive full access to medication and health monitoring in schools; and concludes that all schools should have trained staff to deal with medical emergencies concerning children suffering from diabetes to assist with and if required administer insulin injections and blood glucose tests.
