After our joint media coverage calling on the Government for more detail on access to insulin in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the type 1 diabetes charity JDRF and the charity, Diabetes UK can provide this update:

Following a series of letters and public statements we had a meeting with senior officials with expertise in logistics and supplies of medicines and consumables at the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England.

This was a very encouraging discussion, and alongside the ministerial statement published yesterday, the FAQs on medicine supplies on the NHS England website and the recent reassurances from the insulin manufacturers, we feel more reassured about plans.

We want the Government and Secretary of State for Health to continue to ensure that information about progress is made available and we will continue to work with them to ensure this happens.
