House of Commons debate

Remaining stages of the Health and Care Bill

Briefing published November 2021


This briefing was created for Members of Parliament (MPs) ahead of a debate in the House of Commons on the Health and Care Bill. JDRF set out a number of recommendations that the bill should encompass in order to ensure maximum value for people with type 1 diabetes in the UK who will be affected by the new laws.

These recommendations include:

  1. Ensure person-centred care is at the heart of the NHS, giving people with type 1 diabetes a greater voice and role in Integrated Care Systems
  2. Protect the sustainability of the NHS through innovation and tech-based solutions
  3. Address health inequalities, especially in access to technology amongst hardly-reached groups
  4. Embrace the value of data and introduce a central, UK-wide register for type 1 diabetes, modelled on SCI-Diabetes in Scotland
