Diabetes UK have been running their 'Diabetes is Serious' campaign since 2021 calling for support to restore and improve diabetes care across the UK, following the disruption and pressures from the COVID-19 pandemic and the winter. 

Abdul Rais, our local group committee member and Diabetes Community Champion, represented the DUK Midlands and East of England region and spoke with some of the MPs to highlight this issue. 

Among other people, he also met Chris Askew (DUK chair) and Michelle Griffith-Robinson, former English triple jump olympic champion who is currently a Diabetes Community Ambassador.'
