HL Deb 08 May 2001 vol 625 cc185-6WA
Lord Harrison

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will take any initiatives in relation to National Diabetes Week (10–16 June). [HL1948]

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath

The Government welcome National Diabetes Week, which each year helps to raise awareness of an important area of need. That is why we are developing a national service framework (NSF) for diabetes in England. The diabetes NSF will be published later this year for implementation from 2002. Its aim is to improve health outcomes for people with diabetes by raising the quality of services and reducing variations between them.
